The 385 hp Fastburn 350 uses 1.5 rockers with teh ZZ4 cam (208°/221° .474"/.510" lift on a 112°LSA) then adding 1.6:1 rockers AND teh LT4 Hotcam brings the Fasburn 385 up to teh ZZ430 numbers of 430 hp.

Horsepower 240 hp @ 4,000 rpm
Torque 345 lb-ft @ 3,200 rpm

The GM ZZ4 "hot cam" has more lift and more duration and is designed to work with 1.6 ratio rocker arms which add a little more lift. As an example the GM Parts Performance Fastburn 350 is rated at 385hp. Simply adding the "hot cam" kit raises the hp to 430.

I already have the ZZ4 right here
i didnt want the Hot cam because it read that my computer will need a retune
and the ZZ4 its a bolt on ...
whats the difference between the ZZ4 and the HOT CAM ?

The 'Hot Cam " offered by Chevrolet is a much better camshaft ... IMHO if you are planning on buying a camshaft. Not really a lumpy cam ... but worth 25 more horsepower than a ZZ4 camshaft.
Lots of ZZ4 owners have upgraded to the " Hot Cam " with good results.

good,i don't care for the lumpy idle
how much improvement should i expect ?
or what does it feel ?
sorry about so many questions
im just eager to test it !

You will see some improvement, but don't expect a lumpy idle, the ZZ4 camshaft is pretty mild mannered.
