ok, just for the record, I'm 17.
if 500$ is alot to you, stop worrying about modding your car. 500$ isnt alot to me, and I'm not from money.
Well you're tight.
I think everybody is missing the point here. Yeah I'm probably going to get attacked for this too. But my OP was based off of Bullitts post. Which shows that NPI heads outflow PI heads with higher lift cams. I was unsure about the issue in the first place... Thats why Hypothetically was in the title. It would be different if I said "HEY GUYS LOOK AT TH1S S1CK SH1T I FOUND ON THE 4UMS! IM GUNNE GET LIKE 400HP."
No, I asked for clarification.
I am sorry if it is a stupid question to some of you guys. I realize it would be the same as my girlfriend trying to understand my ramblings about my engineering courses. But I sure as hell do my best to explain things to her.
Some of you guys forget that we're not all experts.
I just dont get why this thread constitutes rudeness and brutal honesty towards me. Fordman, you had a really constructive post within yours :
"NPI heads have different needs than PI heads so we offer NPI specific cams. NPI heads have much more piston to valve clearance than a PI engine, this allows more freedom in camshaft design. They have more restricted exhaust ports so the exhaust duration is made longer to compensate. The 525 intake lift cams will work on stock NPI heads, the 550 lift version will need raised retainers on the intake valves or other modification to work. 500 exhaust lift is used for Stage 1 and 2 as the stock exhaust port stalls at 400 lift. All NPI NA cams are designed to use the stock NPI valve springs up to 6500RPM, above that upgraded valve springs are highly recommended."
Thats ALL I was asking for. If you would have just posted that in the first place I would have said Thanks with a big fat thumbs up. Instead I just have a bitter taste in my mouth about it.
