A buddy of mine is having a super street motor built. The builder builds a lot of drag motors and was thinking about putting a cam in that changes the firing order on the #4 and #7 pistons. anyone heard of this and would it work for a dirt motor? the guy was going to call the cam manufacture today to see what they thought before ordering it just thought i'd see if anyone had any experience with one and if it would work.

What are the known/proven benefits of running this cam? I know Bloom had it in his car at the Alltel 100.

The other purpose for this, as I understand it, is to stop the inductive misfire created between #5 and #7.

Is there any performance advantage to running this Cam? If not then why does IMCA not allow you to run it?

Helps with the harmonics along with the inherent inductive misfire. I agree with the Jesel Belt drive as well. Normally you wouldn't see much difference unless you are compression tuning to optimize individual cylinder timing.
