Bobby Posted May 8, 2020 Share Posted May 8, 2020 Hey guys just looking for some information regarding the values in some cam timing tables if anyone can help out. For the main cam angle table do these values refer to the intake valve opening angle, eg would -10 mean the intake valve will be opening at 10 degrees before top dead centre, or does it just mean that the intake cam is advanced 10 degrees from its "installed position" and has no reference to the intake valve opening timing? Secondly the exhaust cam overlap table, does this reference when the exhaust valve will begin to open in regards to the intake valve closing, eg 30 would mean that there would be 30 degrees of overlap meaning the the exhaust valve would be opening 30 degress before the intake valve would close? This is the way I have interpret these table, just looking to clarify if this is right or whether i am way off. If I am interpreting these right then you would have to make the assumption that there is one of two things happening. Either a, there is somewhere in the PCM where you could tell it the came specs, or b which I think is more than likely the case that the cams are installed with 0 overlap and overlap only occurs when asked for from the PCM? Which would explain why tuning cams would be a pain in the ass if the specifications are unknown. Thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
