    Hughes Engines is releasing a series of performance slant six cams.

    They also have OS valves in the stock slant stem diameter and length.

        Yes, the 212 / 206 duration at .050 will have the torque and hp
        peaks lower on the rpm scale.
        Generally, the larger the duration the higher peak torque and peak hp occur on the rpm scale. And the larger those actual values will .

          Why do all of the listed LSA have a +4?

          That's the intake center line they are suppose to install at. in other words, if one has an LSA of 108, int would install at 4* +, or 104. Get it?

            And then most slant six racers would move the Intake Center Line 2 to 4 additional degrees forward to get it to 102 to 100.
            Advancing the cam brings the power in earlier.

              Well, yes.......but in my case I won't. Mine is going to end up in the 10.5:1 static compression territory, so I don't need any extra advance. I DO want it to run on pump gas. lol
