Due to its short duration and wide lobe separation angle, it also has the least overlap (when intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time) of any of our cams to kill in-cylinder EGR on engines that have higher drive pressure than boost pressure.If you live at high altitudes, tow heavy or are looking for the best efficiency possible for highway driving, this cam will help you considerably
For it to be “drop-in” on a 12v you will need no more than .025″ piston protrusion and at least .055″ valve face depth with a standard head gasket and a 99 intake centerline. On a 98 – 02 24v you will need no more than .025″ piston protrusion and at least .038″ valve face depth with a standard gasket. On an 03 and up, it needs .018″piston protrusion and at least .038″ valve face depth with a standard gasket. If you do not meet the minimum requirements for the piston to valve clearance, don’t worry, you can still run an oversize head gasket or cut valve reliefs.
