So many people want to nit-pick these camshafts and claim that a better cam would knock off .2 seconds, lol. So what? I'm sure I could nit-pick the ENTIRE build and swap parts here and there to shave some ET. So what if the cam isn't optimal for going down the 1/4 mile. That's not what it is intended for.
Funny thing is that they do make decent power!
Hate is a strong word for a simple opinion on a gimmick grind. The fact that every drive by narcissist wants one is proof the gimmick is working.
We are not talking apples to apples. Most guys actually want to drive the cars around and have an efficient engine to cruise with. It is the impractical part of the build/cam that is under fire/question not the person or ideal of building what you want, all the power to em either way.
Hmmm either at idle or WOT they are fine. Anywhere in between and you are sorry.
