True, but check out the calcs. Marketing hype is still marketing hype. Only a world class racer pushing for everything at ANY cost might ask for the last 0.2HP, but some wiser ones opt for relialibity.

I also know of another tradeoff that adds even more hp, compression ratio. That extra valve lift will limit the compression ratio enough that you may even end up with a net loss of power. These ain't chevy heads. Chevy heads can flow at very high valve lifts because of their poor design.

If you haven't bought your cams yet, hear the Elgin guy out and then make a decision.
