Yeah, since you can't make your car fast Harald.

If I can get a pass in, you get your car running and get a pass in, and we tune Ryan's with the good stuff, we'll walk on Tate's points pretty easy.

Agreed. Also, stock cam looking at the lobes. Aftermarket don't usually have the raised section like the stock ones do. I'd guess maybe a VX given the different profile between lobes.
