    you WONT get a lumpy sound from ANY VTEC cam- why? thats the whole point of VTEC.\

    if you want lumpy, get toda's vtec killer cams.... and have a full race car that makes no power till 5k.

    Some VTEC cams still lope at idle- they have more gains under VTEC than smooth idle cams.

    like what ones? even though some aftermarket cams make the non-vtec lobe taller/longer as well, its still generally not enough to give the idel the v8 put pa pa put ta pap pa sound :lol:

    No, typically not. I'm not sure which ones will give you a lumpy idle, but I've seen the specs listed that say "lumpy idle" with VTEC cams.

    see, the way i see it, v8's with cams run like 550+ deree durations. we run like 300 tops on a serious build vtec duration. the numbers speak for them sleves

    Yes, that is what I am talking about. I love lopey idle. It gives it that mean touch. Fuck that granny idle shit.
