The lift would become .510 with no harm to the cams performance.
The 1.7 ratio has a quicker ramp-up speed than the 1.6. I doubt you'd hear a difference in the sound of the engine though.KRC Performance has a cam grind they call "RV". 200/206 480/480 lift on 112 with 1.6 RR. I have a set of Harland Sharp 1.7 RR on my stock 5.2L. What would happen if the 1.7 RR was used with this RV cam. Would it improve or hurt the performance of this cam.
Yeah I'm thinking it's the 206 cam. Same specs but not totally sure.i couldn't find it on there website.the only cam close was the 206 cam.
Nice little cam on ebay, crower 208/214 .502/.502 114lsa. 20 bucks right now with no reserve. I don't know how to give you the link but the title reads cam magnum 360 dakota R/Tif your rebuilding the engine because it needs refreshing,then i think its a GREAT cam choice,i'm planning on using it in my rebuild (if i can't locate an R/T+10 cam) this coming fall.if you just looking to swap cams only,then don't waste your time.
why ? you're not going to have any piston/valve issues at that lift.its really nice of you guys on this website to look after each other with ebay deals and such.unfortuntatly,this is just a bit to big for me,as i'm going to retain my 1.7 rockers and want to keep gross lift under .510-.520.
Ive read that .535 is as far as you can lift with out needing more relief machined in the pistons.
I'd be interested to know the duration on your cam. I also have a 360 with a fair bit of lift on the cam. I checked with clay and piston to valve was close but I thought it looked OK. However, I haven't run it yet so it's not a done deal yet.That's the valve relief on a stock 360 piston, my new cam ill be putting in with the 1.7s will be around .561/.569 and i shouldn't have any valve to piston clearance issues, im also going to use .620lift springs for a better seat pressure.
I don't think .535 is the max...
