We stopped @.350 because most regrind cams don't go past this lifted.

Stock lift is 7.6mm (.300) for a N/A cam, we measured the cams to get our numbers, the duration is 199 @ .050.


There are two designs (port designs) of the 7M head. One has been dubbed "Big Port". Not sure of the production years. I have one of these heads from a JDM N/A, the casting number is 12. I had it flow tested to see if there was any differences. To my surprise the numbers where only different by 1-2 cfm up to .350 lift. Past .350 lift that head flows 10 cfm more in stock form than the regular port head in stock form. If there where a cam that had more than .350 lift maybe this head would be something to look at. Hope this information helps answer any questions about the "Big Port" head.
