Odds are a stock cam. Measure the lobe high and then at the sides and subtract smaller figure from the larger, or the lobe eight, that will tell you.

I got a performance cam from Crane about a year ago for my 2.0. Don't go too wild on a cam like I did on my first one. They have stock, 1 notch over stock, and 2 notches over stock. Don't get more than that if it is for street use.

If for ATX on these even 'one notch' can be too much, but really a worthless term as it in no way describes the cam timing, just like the old school '3/4 race' or 'full race' used in the '60s. Silly terminology that means literally nothing, it only shows you how truly engine smart the talker is. Numbers brother, it's all about the EXACT numbers. Anything else is for those that can't build properly.
