Default Cam question

I noticed that Series I performance has cams for our cars. Well, it makes me wonder why anyone hasn't dropped one in their L67? I am game for this since I love the sound of a cammed car. I know it really isn't that bad aside from the fact that the engine has to come out and the timing gears, chain, water pump, brackets, etc has to come off, no?

Those cams are from austraillia (spelling?) for a L27. Very few have put those in a series 1 L67 not that it wouldn't work it is just that the aussie cars never saw the supercharged engine so there maybe some unforseen issues.

FYI: The engine doesn't have to come out.

If you want a cam, figure out your lobe profiles and have CompCams make one. That'* what I'd do.

For a supercharged engine you want to keep the valve overlap to a minimum.
Most NA performance cams have too much overlap to work well with the blower.
