Enhancing your camshaft does help in increasing Hp and torque , but im not sure about the smog thing...all i know is that it depends on the duration size for the lobes...or somthing like that.

so changing my camshaft is legal, as long as u keep the lobes that has the duration as the stock? thats no good, then it'll be exactly the same. dont u want a lobe thats a little longer for your intake stroke so that it sucks in more air, well i guess that wont pass smog either, huh?

Of course you would want bigger lobes , but im not saying that you wont pass smog....well it depends on how you set the camshaft.

also where you set your timing at. tuning is the key in making power with any setup. you even need tuning for suspension so is not just engine.

yeah dood, if you get like some skunk2 stage 1's, you'll pass smog and have some good gains, you gets S2 stage 2's, you'll hear a lil ruffer idle and i dunno abut the smog part there, for sure stage 3's your not goig pass smog and besides something that high is too much to maintain for daily driven

if you want to pass smog, just retard your timing by 3-5 degrees, then when your done, advance it back up.

retarding the timing would lean out the car a bit si it uses and burns less fuel. More burned air being picked up by sensors than fuel.

But what I think is the stupidest part of a smog inspection is the visual. If I ran the government, I wouldn't care if a turbo is the size of a watermellon, if it comes out clean the other end, no one cares.

you dont necessarily need cam gears. it just nice to have if you're going to tune your car. going NA is all about tuning.
