How to Degree Your Camshaft
Lots of gearheads skip degreeing in the camshaft when working on an engine
because they think the practice is too complex or difficult. But this
method of degreeing your camshaft is actually quite simple and

We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process

Variable CAM timing is a concept that entails changing the camshaft timing,
as needed, depending on engine LOAD demands. This technology was impossible
just a few years ago, due to the state of the art electronics needed. The
latest Variable CAM Timing (VCT) systems are infinitely variable, meaning
they have no specified settings. CAM timing can be changed or varied
instantaneously across the whole range (ie. Plus or Minus 30 degrees from
normal). By varying the CAM timing, the ECM can regulate the power curve to
meet its own needs. On any gasoline engine, each RPM setting has an optimum
CAM timing setting, depending on load. Up until a few years ago engines
were set whatever the CAM lobes were machined at. With modern VCT, this
relationship can be varied, also varying the engine's power curve. Most
modern VCT systems do not control valve lift, but do great by simply
changing open and close timing points during engine operation. See how it
works here, with this superbly animated training video on automotive
technology and variable cam timing (VCT).
