Overlap is a key factor, but not all...

So with that being said:

Period of overlap...

B303 - 60 degrees
E303 - 62 degrees
F303 - 60 degrees

Hmm....

what about compared to a steeda 18 or 19 cam?
since everyone else want to debate book theroy instead of answer the OP'S question.....I will answer this one based on having heard the steeda first hand....the steeda #19 has a very good idle quality infact a member on here previously posted a thread on his and a video of the idle...= nice and smooth

I've been planning on getting the steeda #19 cam because you have all said such great things about it but I was just listening to exhaust clips on youtube and I heard a few B and E cams that sound amazing in my opinion. I believe the steeda cam out does the abc cams a little bit performance wise but am I going to get the lope I want???
it's not the lope you should be concerned about..it's the idle quality and your factorys ecm 's limited capability to compensate for such a change..or better said over correct for such a change..the steeda #!9 was designed for a sn-95 to be used with a stock sn-95 ecm to give good idle quality without the ned for a custom tune
Not even that as much as which cam best fits my needs and engine specs. Choosing a cam based on lope is so dumb, if that's all your interested in then you could easily end up with a cam way too large for your engine and actually make your car slower because of it. If you want a lot of lope go with something over 230° exhaust duration @ 050.

Being that the Steeda and E cam have the same intake duration and the Steeda has 6° more exhaust duration my guess would be the steeda would make more power.

o ok so basicaly your saying that steeda 19 cam and the E cam are very similar and that the steeda will run a bit smooth because of its design

Just because the Steeda #19 is computer friendly does NOT mean it idles smooth, my car lopes very good.

Default RE: Will I get more lope from a steeda #19 cam or an ABC cam?

I apologize if what I stated was taken rudely. It was posted that the sound comes from the period of overlap. So I posted the overlap periods between the camshafts to make the mind think a little bit.

The overlap period of the Steeda in question is 53 degrees.

Basic specs...

B303 - 224*/224* 284*/284* - .480"/.480" - .300"/.300" - 112* - 107* ATDC /117* BTDC - 3,300-5,100 RPM
Overlap: 60 degrees.
1.6 Rocker Ratio
Intake Opening: 5* BTDC
Intake Closing: 39* ABDC
Exhaust Opening: 49* BBDC
Exhaust Closing: 5* BTDC

E303 - 220*/220* - 282*/282* - .498"/.498" - .311"/.311" - 110* - 110*/110* - 2,500-5,500 RPM
Overlap: 62 degrees.
1.6 Rocker Ratio
Intake Opening: 0* BTDC
Intake Closing: 40* ABDC
Exhaust Opening: 40* BBDC
Exhaust Closing: 0* BTDC

F303 - 226*/226* - 288*/288* - .512"/.512" - .320"/.320" - 114* - 109*/119* - 2,800-6,000 RPM
Overlap: 60 degrees.
1.6 Rocker Ratio
Intake Opening: 4* BTDC
Intake Closing: 42* ABDC
Exhaust Opening: 52* BBDC
Exhaust Closing: 6* BTDC


Steeda #19 - 220*/226* - 280*/286* - .480"/.480" - 115* - 2,300-6,000 RPM

1.6 Roller Rockers
Intake Opening: 26* BTDC
Intake Closing: 74* ABDC
Exhaust Opening: 79* BBDC
Exhaust Closing: 27* ATDC

Recommended Valve Springs:
110lbs closed/312 lbs open

Either way, a camshaft alone DOES NOT make the sound. Just like everything, the entire package/set-up is going to attribute to particular sounds.

youll get the most lope by going online and finding a soundclip and playing it over and over again


i think sound should be the last thing on your mind... i have a cam that outperforms all 4 of the mentioned cams(for my set up) that doesnt sound like it would...

anyway, biggest factor in "lope" is going to be LSA(or over lap), and the intake lobe profile...

i have 218 intake, which isnt big by anymeans and it lopes some
