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.

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.
