Well if you have too little stall it will effect the cars launch. For example lets say your cam maker suggests a 3000 + rpm stall cause the cam is designed to start making power at 3000 rpm and above. You install a 1800 rpm convertor. When you go to launch the car hard the car at most will be launching at 1800 rpm 1100 rpm lower than the power band on the cam and the launch would very likely be mushy/sluggish. The car once rolling however and got up to 3000+ rpm the power would pour on and the car would appear to come to life. This is JMO.Pete said:It is an L79 cam
advertised @5 degrees lift lobe angle
320/320 221/221 .447/.447 114
Is there a downfall if you too low of a stall?
Thanks for all the help guys.
One thing that is interesting is that your advertised duration is 320 degrees but your @ .050 duration is only 221. WOW that seems like a big difference. With 320 advertised duration I would expect to see about (ballpark guess) 270ish @.050 duration. Hmmmmm....you wouldn't happen to have the grind number and the makers name?
