Actually there is no such thing as a ZZ4 hotcam, teh GM cam that is designed for 1.6 rockers is the LT4 HOTCAM with 218°/228° on a 112°LSA with .492"/.492? with 1.5's rockers or .525"/.525" with 1.6's.

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.

Deuce 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.

302 Z28 You will see some improvement, but don't expect a lumpy idle, the ZZ4 camshaft is pretty mild mannered.
