Are you worried about the valves, or what?

Planning on throwing a wet nitrous kit. I was also alerted that you can't have monstrous cams with boosted motors? This true? It happens to take away from the performance and also throw hazard to a blown motor.

Cam grinds that are optimized for NA are different than cam grinds optimized for nitrous/FI.

I believe it happens to be a difference in the vacuum the different grinds make

From the Comp Cams FAQ

3. My motor is currently normally aspirated, but I plan on installing a power adder. Can I use the same cam for both applications?

Normally aspirated (N/A) engines and boosted engines generally require different camshafts for optimum efficiency. Typically, camshafts intended for use with power adders will feature a wider LSA and more exhaust duration than those intended for use in a non-boosted application.

A few important points:

• Each type of power adder is different and so are the cams that work best with them. Variables such as boost pressure or nitrous horsepower shot must be taken into consideration to ensure consistent performance.

• Nitrous creates a lot of cylinder heat and requires more exhaust duration to help evacuate the cylinder.

• Superchargers also increase cylinder heat and tend to work more efficiently with a wider lobe separation.

• Turbocharger technology has come a long way. Again, many variables should be considered, but in general you don’t need a very large cam. Turbo cams in fact, should have less exhaust duration than a N/A cam. .

Re: so the engine guy emailed me back...

Ask him a few questins, first I can only assume its a hyper piston? Then ask him what the rings are made of, is the top moly and the second grey iron? If so, ask him what stone is used to finish hone the block, then ask what his spec is on bore taper and out of round. These are a few questions that when answered will tell you alot of info.

That and the "overlap" between the intake and exhaust on an NA motor is more prevalent, where as a boosted motor will blow the mixture out if the exhaust is open too long.


*edit* Dammit, glad I didn't finish. Just saw Mark's post... SORRY MARK!!
