Take flow measurements to choose camshaft and figure what CR you need to make it all work
After reading up on it and seeing that they dont make a difference unless you're REALLY racing, I see your point since I'm going for a mild setup. I guess I initially thought that with the roller cam and more pressure from the .1 increase, it would create a little extra top end power with the 1.6s.
