I heard somewhere that a b8 camshaft (8valve) can operate 16 valves on a 16 valve head and that it would increase performance. It sounded off to me. I was looking at the camshaft and I can't see any reason that it would operate a 16 valve valvetrain with only 8 lobes unless the 16 valve valvetrain works 2valves per lobe.

I just can't find any pictures to compare with and I don't have a garage, so I'm not taking the valve cover off just to look.

Am I correct that the 8 valve b8 camshaft will not work all 16 valves on a 16 valve SOHC head?

Haha, thanks. Just looking for some reassurance.

When my girlfriend asks why I have an old camshaft lying around, I'll just tell her it'll work as a spare that will give me at least half power if my current one goes bad, rofl haha.
