Fuel injected engine camshafts

I found this link interesting because it speaks to early 90's "K" code 350's and talks about how the lobe center has to grow with the engine size and flashing the ecm.Now that might be important to guys wanting to do a V8 swap.This is a article from Engine-Builder.com

I used an Isky Cam in my v8....id have to find the part number. Linden for Westers Garage flashed the ECM for me using a modified Savanna van. Isky said the ECM DIDN'T have to be changed because the ECM fuel/ air map would notice the changes.

Three things on my wish list.

Edelbrock finds a way to lower the costs their EFI systems without giving up anything.

Edelbrock develops a stronger cam design for their EFI sytem and one that is for variable timing

Edelbrock designs a aftermarket programmable electronic variable cam timing system for all the above.

That would be with a good set of heads a outstanding best ever.Just hot a set-up.
