Re: cam lope
"Cam Lope" is caused more by uneven cyl/cyl fuel distribution than the cam grind. If you were to put an 097 cam in 2 barrel 283, it would lope like crazy; in a fuel injected car, it idled smooth. What lope really means is that your engine could run better if you had a better intake manifold. When I hear an engine that lopes, I hear an engine that needs tuning.
