I think this is because this is text book *theory* is not hard facts.
Theory can good at predicting things to a point.  Real life experimentation
is the only way I know to get the true answer.  Also,  theory can be
misapplied to situations or it can apply well but something important gets
left out of the equation....  After all we are human and *do* make mistakes.

It's good to here from someone who actually has Nick's cam.  I love to see
hard data, so I just gotta see the dyno sheets.

Since, most people have their cars as daily drivers, how has you gas mileage
been since you installed the cam?

I would like to hear from anyone else that has Nick's cam.  I'm considering
it as a replacement for my FMS roller.
