the y8 cam is the tiniest bit bigger than the z6..still have yet to figure out why people go through the trouble of swapping to the y8

i dont think the cams are different at all actually, the only difference between the two is the y8 cam is indexed 5 degrees retarded than the z6 since the y8 requires less timing to do the same job.
