Seriously you are pretty contradictory with your statements Jiminni Cricket. As far as a cam being specifically designed for a motor is a joke. A motor doesn't know if a cam is made for it or not, it will either run like crap or really sing it really has no idea. Crower is by far the worst cam grinder for overhead cam's.

You can't use pushrod cam design on a overhead valve cam it just won't work. Which reiterates a cam will make a motor run like crap or it will make it sing. Proper cam design for the valvetrain type (pushrod, overhead cam) is how things are done.

If you want a really good overhead cam Kelford, GSC, Catcams and Newman are the grinders to look at.

Alright, time to chime in. I had looked at a lot of cams over the past two years, especially since my R50 is no longer my daily driver and I can afford to take away a little turn key reliability for some extra performance. I looked at schrick, ns1, cat, and Newman. After some spec comparison, review reading, and research. I decided on the Cat Cam in their stage 1 street trim. I love the idea of solid mid range gains where I will be driving the car rather top end. With that being said, Cat had cams to grant me top end power, just not what I wanted. The Schrick is supposed to be a great grind, just slightly more aggressive than what my Cat is.

In conclusion, research this further and ask yourself what your end result is going to be. You will be happier with a cam that helps you accomplish that. The beauty of a cam is they are not terribly expensive, so you could always swap it out for another if the first one isn't going to do what you want it to do.

Keep us posted

This is an amusing thread. needs a touch more hostility a sprinkle of ignorance and just a dash ill-willed humor to be REALLY good. At the end of the day YOU have to be happy with your choice and YOU have to drive it. The keyboard crusaders will ALWAYS have something to say whether it be personally motivated or based on actual knowledge/experience
