Default Miller cycle engines

For those that may want to know what the idea of a Miller cycle is (from the Guess the car thread)

The cam profile keeps the intake valve open well into what would normally be the compression stroke. The idea is to get the max work out of the fuel/air mix by letting it expand further than it is compressed.

The engine NEEDS to be force inducted though. That keeps compressing air into the combustion chamber longer. If it was N/A it'd blow out the manifold/TB.That'* the key part.

I believe some mazda millenias with SC'* ran this style of cam profile.
