    It just shows how long they are opening the valves for and how far they open. The more they open and the longer they are open for the more power they produce but the more aggressive ones will make the idel lumpy and may not give any benifit until much further up in the rev range, maybe up to 7500rpm+...... Ring them and ask, tell them what you want and see what they say
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    so third from bottom would still be ok for normal road use? or would fourth from top be better! i jus want more mid range power, faster acceleration and safer over taking.

    i know the 1.8 isnt very tuneable but i know cams can do a world of good!

    edit: and i want to be unique an say i'm the only 1.8 owner with sports cams!!
