    We are going to have to find actual Numbers that can be plugged into Dynomotion.
    I am still using DD2000.

    I Find IVO, IVC, EVO, EVC numbers from Rons Pontiac website online for the Pontiac V8 guys doing Tech on the TA Forum.
    My Thing.
    Analysis Cams & post results.

    Can be tough if the manufactures do not post actual cam card numbers.
    I can plug in advertised numbers.'
    Results not so accurate.

    Let's stop here so I can get Geoff to digest all of this and I will find out exactly what he has with casting numbers.

    The 3-Bolt LS Cams are the way to go Mike.
    Like a Small Block Chevy.

    1 Bolt LS not so good.
    Made wrong.
    Just will not hold up like a 1-bolt Pontiac V8 or Olds V8.

    OK.
    Tired here myself.
    I can look for Cam card numbers in the morning at 5am.

    Generally the Power Band is just shifted around.

    Race Cams make the Huge Power.
    Not so streetable of course.
    I can not predict accurate without an engine simulator.

    Unless I ran the cam myself prior in a Pontiac V8 or Chevy V8.
