Want an increase in acceleration or top speed? Adjustable cam sprockets have been used by engine builders for years to set cam timing exactly where they want them. By advancing or retarding the cam timing, you can move peak torque and power output of an engine to a higher or lower rpm"
- Plus/Minus 10 degrees of adjustability on the camshaft (crankshaft degrees)
- General affects of Lobe Separation Angle
- Narrower: Increased overlap, Broad torque cure
- Wider: Decreased overlap, Increased peak power
- General affects of Advancing and Retarding camshaft timing
- Advanced: Moves peak torque and power to a lower rpm,
improves low end throttle response.
- Retarded: Moves peak torque and power to a higher rpm
