Edelbrock Performer-Plus Camshaft #2162 is designed for 396-427-454 Chevy V8 engines and produces optimum torque from the low-end to the mid-range. Performer-Plus camshafts should be matched with Performer manifolds for vehicles operating from off-idle to 5500 rpm. The Performer-Plus #2162 is a smooth idling cam 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. This cam produced 470 Ft Lbs of Torque when paired with Performer 2-0 intake manifold #2161 and stock cylinder heads. Not for 1965-66 big-block Chevrolets requiring a grooved rear cam journal. Camshaft specifications: - Intake duration: 218 Degrees - Exhaust duration: 228 Degrees - Intake lift: .500" - Exhaust lift: .500" - Lobe separation: 114 Degree - Intake Center Line: 109 Degree - Vacuum: 15"
