    LOL, too many factors to pick a certain lobe separation... I just call Scotty Brown and fill out the spec card for him, custom cars deserve custom cams.

    I guess this means nobody knows anything about it.

    The tighter the LSA, the more potential overlap. Overlap decreases engine vacuum, makes for a rougher idle, but better cylinder filling. Tighter also reduces the RPM where peak power occurs, reduces the RPM difference between peak HP and peak torque. The effects of tighter LSA also depend on duration numbers. A perfect example is the TA C118 cam. The 118 LSA makes the cam milder than it would be with a tighter LSA like the 113 cam. The TA C113 cam has the same duration numbers on a tighter LSA.

    Cam I ordered on left, cam I received on right. Ended up with more duration and less overlap.

    That should work well! Similar to the Crower level 5 solid that I’ve got. Got a few for $39 a few years back.
