Let's be honest. A cam job is only for the sound.

Obviously the sound is a big attraction but have a look at some of Mark's Workshop Youtube N/A vids for performance gains.

A cam must provide more HP as it increases lift and duration. I increased lift alone a got some decent gains.

I'm getting a cam done when DPLRBL gets out of gaol.
How does it change the drive?

so many just want the lumpy idle... then complain about its drivability but put up with it as they have a poor tuner or just a wrong cam, all u need is a little bigger with better valve events and u can tune in some lumpy and keep it very street friendly, personally i like a good cam sound but also there is alot of tuned cam sounds that the tuner forces which i dont like (those ba ba ba ba ba ba idle tunes ) as to me the natural lope is what im after but i also want it to work with the engine as it controls what is let in and pushed out...

When you raise compression you also need a later intake valve closing.
Some cam change for that......
