    Just forget the torque to spec method and adjust rockers like every SBC has done. Its not that hard.
    You're right, its not hard. Its just a bunch of steps that aren't necessary on an LT4. So you can't answer my question either. Did you reply only to insult me and my quest for knowledge? Thank you.

    Why you would want to run any cam with the stock torque to spec rockers is the real question, and why do a cam swap for 10hp. that is the elephant in the room

    good luck


    Please pull up where I said 10hp for the hotcam. I will wait. You are a fun person too. If you can't answer someone's question you make up things they said and insult them for it. Hilarious. What a great site to come get information.

    If the cam base lobe is the same diameter of the LT4 OEM cam, I would imagine it would "work" to torque down to a specific value. As long as you have the OEM shouldered rocker studs.

    IMO, you are placing a lot of trust in GM who made the torque numbers based on a set combo. But, its a free country so do what you think is best.
    Correlation does not imply causation.
