The same engine will usually tolerate a little more exhaust duration so,,,
maximize the intake closing time and use bigger ratio rockers,,,this is the biggest cam you can run(or bigger than what you might have picked) The exhaust valve staying open longer gives time for exhaust like a bigger cam,no need to increase rocker ratio.
Poor wording,sorry.
