: i might have an answer.. humm.. ok.. well you see i have some cams in my car that makes it slow but adds about 25pounds of tourqe.. it no longer screams above 5k... it is mostly an intake cam. i am not sure how to explain it simply because i dont even really understand it but i will try.. hey said a stock intake cam is a <52>.. not sure what the 52 means.. and well the after market cam was a <74>. this might mean deg. or loeb lift or something... but is not as fast as it was before but the cas is much funner with a little more torque..----------------------------------
So, what you are saying is that you installed an after-market cam in your engine (a "74") that makes your engine behave this way so you would gain low end torque at the expense of high rpm power?

The cam is marked in some way?
