What I've said all along is that cams don't make a big difference...none
of them.  The whole reason I want to make a roller is that nobody makes a
"decent" one (like the Engle).  

All I originally wanted was a roller (so I could use synthetic oil and
stiff valvesprings) that would work as well as the Engle.  If we get any
more, it's just a bonus.  I do think that the faster ramps will help a
little, because we can use essentially a smaller pattern, while actually
having a larger cam (more area "under the curve"), but I've never seen a
turbo cam for any application that ran much better than a decent
"stock-ish" cam.

Talk to you soon,
