Default Cam Choice

Hey fellas, I've busily been squirreling away parts for my build but I'm a little stuck on my next part: cam choice. What I am wondering is how do you guys find the XPZ Cam? I have been thinking of running it and 1.7:1 rockers?

Does anyone have any experiences with the XPZ? how does it compare to the Intense S3?

Cheers, Matt

Your not going to find many people on this board running those cams but I'm sure others have seen them in other cars. To run either of those cams you will need had work (assuming you don't have it already.)

Here are some numbers for you on the cams. Taken from 3800pro.com


Description Duration @ .050" Lobe Lift L.*.A. Centerline

ZZP XPZ 217/225 .352/.333 116 N/A

INTENSE Stage 3 Blower: 222/228 .338/.344 115 111

INTENSE Stage 3 Turbo: 223/214 .338/.332 116 110

Ask on 3800pro.com or ClubGP.com. There are many people on these sites running these cams.
