I have an exahst cam I'm thinking about what to do with it?
I've heard some use the stocker exhuast as the intake cam?
The race intake is so hard to come by these days not sure of any other solution.
any thoughts? am I totaly retarded ?
Thanks in advance

it will work , but you will loose power because the stock intake has more lift than the stock exhaust cam so its not worth the swap

You can't use the intake cam on the exhaust side. The reason for that is fuel injection. The computer must know if the piston going up is on the exhaust stroke or the compression stroke. How it knows this is by a sensor on the exhaust cam side. The exhaust cam has to be able to trip the sensor. There is no provisions for this on the intake cams.

An enterprising individual might be able to machine it though. Most likely out of the abilites of most home mechanics.

So it wouldnt be a simple bolt on.
