Re: Schrick cam vs. ?

With your budget, perhaps a cam isn't your best investment.  The Schrick
272(great cam) won't offer you any appreciable advantage untill after 4000
rpm or so. At least that is true in my 4kcsq and it has the advantage of a
better exhaust. With a limited budget and the coupe gt, I'd spend my first
money on the exhaust. Yes only 5 hp gained by using the 4kq system; but
torque is up at 3000rpm too! You won't get additional torque with a cam
change, you will just get your torque in a different rpm range.
