yes, the search button is my buddy; however, I have searched and I've just learned how the cams actually work . I didn't see anything about replacing the cam gears, just figured, if your gonna do one you do the other.
sorry shabby just searched more, and realized that I'm gonna do the 264/264; This was after reading AMS. I'm still confused on the whole "do I wanna just replace the cam gears while I'm replacing the cams".
Thanks for all the input guys. Reddevil I'm in the process of upgrading to an 18g within the month, so I feel that is big enough. Last night I also just purchased my o2 eliminatr w/dump and safc. I decided to get the fuel control before getting the cams; however, I am going to order them w/in the next 2 weeks.
loreak, I posted this in another cam thread a minute ago, but I'll put it here too since it pertains directly to your question.
I did some back to backs on pump gas (track was closed) with the logger and I measured a 4 lb/min increase going from stock to 264/264. Going to full 272s gained me another whole lb/min. This was on a TDO6/50 trim. I saw no difference in airflow at lower rpms, and consequently felt no loss in low end power. Idle is equally "cool" with both cams. Not much difference that I can see. The one downside to the full 272s was a noticeable increase in lag. It wasnt bad, maybe a 1-200 rpm, but it was noticeable. I think the majority of people would be doing well to get the 264s, but since they are the same cost, its easy to say why not just get the 272s. Your call
