    can you post the specs on that cam, it'll make it easier to hepl ya out. not everyone know s the specs just by hearing what type it is. things needed to know.

    advertised duration at .050
    intake lift and duration
    exhaust lift and duration
    lobe center angle

    those numbers would help out a bit.

    and if you have these numbers it'd be even more descriptive

    int opens int close exh opens exh close
    exh stroke int stroke pwr stroke exh stroke
    BTDC ABDC BBDC ATDC

    those number would be in degrees.

    wtf is jg an abbreviation for ? I'm looking for their web site but can't seem to find it

    also some info I ran across

    JG cams are all regrinds, meaning that they are all smaller than the
    factory spec and have smaller base circle. Most people with JG cams
    have to adjust their valves very often

    regrinds suck.

    JG is now JG Edlebrock... so these cams you are looking at are pretty old to say the least
