Torque.. highest average torque----power.

This is where this cam likes to be. 100 to 103 intake C/L
especially in a 406.

( the herbert ..510" cam would have worked better than it did if it was also installed correctly.)
101 to 104 in C/L..... I suggested 103 for this one.
Its all about finding the best sweet spot. You can play a bit withe the valve lash setting too, on a mechanical cam.
