Choosing the correct Performance camshafts for optimising the breathing of a performance or race engine are probably much more technical than many enthusiasts really care for.
Choosing the correct camshaft for an engine can have a significant input into low end drivability and power.
For example a 272 cam which is a common request! There are dozens of variations of a 272 degree profile for any given engine. It can have different lobe centers, different peak lift specifications and so on, but still be called a 272. More importantly is what goes on with the profile from 1mm of lift and upwards.
