I want to run a stock cam for the smooth idle, and sleeper style. I have 1.72 rockers, Holley heads and intake on it as well, 72mm turbo. Would you run the cam straight up or retard it 2 or 4 degrees?

Thanks -Jesse

I would just run the stock cam normal, the lsa will be good for lowend tq which will bring in the power early and let you hold it up top. A couple degrees of retard may be good for some peak power but will loose some lowend tq.

Which reminds me why I love vct lol

Id run it straight up.....I run mine straight up...Especially if its a stock block you'll not want to rev it to the moon unless you like sweeping up parts. :eeek:

What RPM are you stock cam guys shifting at? I specifically went with an "F" cam over the stocker just so I wouldn't have a narrow powerband.

I ended up putting it in 2* retarded. I already had the adjustable timing set, figured Id use it. Probably wont even make much of a difference. Ill post up a dyno sheet after I get it dialed in
