You can undelete it, I was just trying to point out the roller cam flank concavity issue, but that graphic works too.

just an FYI on the 30K spring change, my boss (who was a former drag racer) says that changing springs every 30K was designed by companies to make money. But if you have to money to do it every 30K it wouldn't hurt but he let his run 45-50K and only replaced them because he was selling the car to a friend. Hope this helps a little bit

Single and Dual pattern cams

Single Pattern
In this type of cam, the intake and exhaust lobe profiles are identical, using equal amounts of duration and lift.

Dual Pattern
This type of cam has different intake and exhaust profiles. In general, the exhaust lobe will employ more lift and duration to help evacuate exhaust gas from the cylinders.
