What is the benefit of running a camshaft with the #4 and #7 firing order swap?

Just curious.

Thanks for any info.

Steven.

There is another thread on this cam on here. From what comp cams told me, it is easier on the crank & runs cooler. I don't really know I haven't tried one yet ,but I have done some calling on them.

My understanding is that it helps with cooling and stops "inductive cross-firing" between 5 and 7, but plug wires are usually good enough to stop this anyway.

Plus if you have a claim rule it really messes with the guys that claimed you. I know of an engine that was claimed with that cam (the original owner bought it back cheap!!).
