Small-Block Chevy Camshafts and Matching Components
PERFORMER-PLUS CAMSHAFTS Designed for optimum torque from the low-end to the mid-range, Performer-Plus camshafts match with Performer manifolds for vehicles operating from off-idle to 5500 rpm. They are smooth idling cams for daily drivers, trucks, vans, RVs and 4x4s. You can expect a major improvement in throttle response and torque. In the manifold section you'll find torque graphs showing the power gains from Performer manifolds and Performer-Plus cams. All camshafts include flat tappet lifters (except for cams designed for use with stock roller lifters), assembly lube and instructions. These popular Performer-Plus camshafts for Small-Block Chevy are 50-state street legal.
PERFORMER RPM CAMSHAFTS Designed for street high-performance applications, Performer RPM cams provide power from 1500 to 6500 rpm. These hydraulic lifter camshafts are dyno-matched to Performer RPM manifolds for high-rpm horsepower while still maintaining acceptable low-end torque. With 10 to 12 inches of manifold vacuum at idle, Performer RPM cams have more lift and duration than most street camshafts. In the manifold section you'll find horsepower graphs showing the power levels obtainable when the Performer RPM package is used with the right combination of Edelbrock components. Hydraulic flat tappet lifters are included with each Performer RPM camshaft.
TORKER-PLUS CAMSHAFTS Designed to work with Torker II manifolds for performance from 2500 to 6500 rpm, these camshafts are ideal for high-performance street, drag or marine applications. Torker-Plus cams have a slightly rough idle and are not suitable for trucks or towing applications. Hydraulic flat tappet lifters are included with each camshaft.
ROLLIN' THUNDER CAMSHAFTS (HYDRAULIC ROLLER)
Edelbrock Rollin' Thunder camshafts are designed to improve horsepower and torque, produce a great sounding performance idle and provide excellent vacuum at idle to support power accessories. Rollin' Thunder camshafts feature more aggressive lift profiles than possible with conventional flat-tappet hydraulic cams, without excessive valve overlap that can compromise low rpm drivability; reduced friction provided by roller tappets makes this combination of accelerated valve lift and reduced duration possible. Edelbrock Rollin' Thunder camshafts are performance matched to Edelbrock Total Power Package components for proven performance.
Performance - Roller camshafts produce higher lift velocity and faster valve action produces increased horsepower and torque gains
Drivability - Produces great sounding idle while providing excellent vacuum at idle to support power accessories
Durability - The smaller surface contact area of a roller tappet and reduced friction combined with stronger camshaft material (hardened steel or iron) ensures longer camshaft life
Environmental - Can use ILSAC GF-4 oil, which lowers your engines emissions and does not require zinc or phosphate oil additives
Economy - Reduced contact friction between the lifter and camshaft increases an engines fuel economy for better mileage potential
