Highport cams into a lowport? Both cams?
A buddy of mine wants to do the intake cam swap. He'll be using my 60K mile cam for the job.

Since his engine has over 200k on it would there be any harm in using BOTH newer intake and the exhaust highport cams? Or, should he stick with only swapping the intake cam?

no harm, when the cams were swapped into my lowport both cams were used

I did both as well, only need for the intake but do what you want.

the intake cam would be just fine (the exhaust one is the same) but if u want you can swap both

thats awesome thanks for the input

The highport and lowport exhaust cam are known to be the same profile, so that is why nobody swaps the exhaust one, because there is no reason to.

Well the 200k mile exhaust cam will definitely be more worn. I'd be curious what if any measurable difference you can demonstrate.
