okay so i need to know how a blower cam would act n/a.. a guy im buying heads from is throwing in cams and they are for more of a blower application. How would these react n/a? im sure nitrous and these cams would be fine, but i need to know how they will act without anything. thanks

they would act fine. Unix ran blower cams for a while before his blower was installed. He said he still had a nice gain.

Blower cams have bigger Lobe Separation Angles in general (to reduce valve overlap).
the blower cams usually dont have the "lope" that n/a cams have..
but some do..
So NA cams have more overlap and that's why they sound so lopey (sp?), gotcha!

How can you tell the lobe separation angles when you're looking at cam specs? Is that what the LC (I think it stands for lobe center) means after the lift and duration specs?

Maybe I'm confused or dumb, but I can't tell if a cam is a blower cam or an NA cam by looking at specs, it has to say "Blower" right in the title.

I ran a set of crower stage 2 blower cams in my n/a motor for a while, great low end, and not too bad in the higher revs, it didnt pull as hard on top as it would have with a n/a cam, and they sounded ok, you could tell the cams were there, but like a few people already mentioned, no where near as lopey an a n/a cam
