Does anyone out there have any dyno charts displaying power gains? I have heard good things about the Delta 272 cam in D15B2 and D16A6 motors, but I hadn't heard of anyone using it in a Y7. Doesn't the powerband on the 272 fall off after 7000 rpm?

The delta 272 does not increase the lift, only the duration i believe. It doesnt make horsepower after 6200 rpm i think, someone confirm. I want to go with the Bisi street regrind but will prolly end up going with the Delta 272 because of cost. Both have pros and cons.

C'mon somebody out there has to have a stock vs Delta cam dyno comparison! Okay how about this. Did the Delta 272 feel like it made more power?!!?!?!

No it lost power. Christ bro. It is supposed to make about 10-12% more hosepower than current. It is a nice cam. Nice idle and broad power band.

Yes, it has more lift. Do some searching it's been covered lots over the years. I'm currently making close to 12whp with a 272 with a stock Y7 bottom end, mildly ported head, intake header exhaust, etc.

I thought it didnt that is why it doesnt make power at a higher rpm. its rated like 3000-6300rpm right.

272 is good on a stock engine with basic bolt on, gain is nice, 282 with some head works and some internal modif like valve spring and retainer and tuning when everything is done.

12 whp is a good gain for a SOHC. How about other cams, like Gude, Web, or Bisimoto. Has anyone tried one of those?
