I look at degreeing a cam as a process that makes sure the cam grind is what you expected and making sure of your top dead center. Really, you shouldn't have to mess with much.

Start reading on page 3 of this link (check out the box at the top of that page): http://www.compcams.com/Technical/In.../Files/145.pdf

The BEST way to get higher RPM performance is to choose the right cam based on your gears/tires/trans and how you want the car to perform.

The most influential part of degreeing the cam is moving the intake closing point. You also shift the rest of the points, like the EVO, EVC, and IVO but they don't have as noticeable of an effect. If you dealy the IVC point (ie retarding the cam) you can shift your power band up SLIGHTLY. A few hundered RPMS is the maximum amount that will be seen in the shift. More often than not its done to crutch an initially poor choice of cam, though it can be used for other reasons, especially in racing. Sometimes people also "advance" the cam to help lower the RPM where maximum torque is made in an effort to maek a race type cam more streetable.

Didn't like the answers you got to this question in your last post yesterday?

https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/383-engine-115183.html

What people have been trying to tell you is:

1. This isn't going to "fix" the wrong cam for your engine.

2. Wait until you've actually started the engine before you "decide" it needs changing.

Keep asking till you get the answer you wanted.....
