Re: Opinions on Clifford Cams

I'd also like to know what you gain with a cam at expense of low end torque. Is there a win-win cam grind out there, and if so, why didn't the factory use it to make more HP?

Re: Opinions on Clifford Cams

Thanks for the link, Leve. It made me think a little and now I have another question (based somewhat on my reading comprehension skill and somewhat on what a Clifford salesperson once told me).

If you put a bigger (lift/duration) cam in, will you get a better result if you upgrade your exhaust also? Or, is there much noticeable benefit with a bigger cam and stock exhaust?

[/ QUOTE ] 1. If the duration for the exhasust valve is longer, then the exhaust can be expelled faster.
2. The question is does the existing system handle the expelled exhautst now?
3. IMHO, the only time you'd really need to upgrade the exhaust sytem is if you also widly opened up the air intake with something like a K&amp;N.
4. Remember it's all a system.
a. If you take more in in a given amount of time for a finite volume,
b. compress and
c. exhaust it...
d. it's got to go some where.
5. If the present exhaust system can't handle the volume then you'll have to upgrade.
6. Check the pressure at the exhaust.

Re: Opinions on Clifford Cams

My father and I have had very good luck with Clifford Cams, though I will admit we've only used them on 292 Chevy's and 300 Fords. They've always been helpful and done good by us.

Hope this helps!
