Godbold thinks it would be revealing to do the same test with a much smaller set of three cams in the same application. "Then I think you would see a wider power range on the wider separation cam," he observed. "I still think 107 would give you the best peak numbers, but the wider separation cams tend to fall off less beyond peak power." With smaller cams running at a lower rpm, we'd probably be able to see that. But for now, we've got a very clear demonstration of the advantages-namely a more usable powerband-of running a narrower LSA.
