Andrews #1 Cam: REVIEW
The motor starts the same. The idle is a bit smoother. Slightly more valve-train noise, but it's that good kind of solid tappet noise. I can feel more bottom end torque. No "blapping" out the pipes. I don't feel the "hit" of the cam coming on (like the Sifton), but I think it's because it's pulling earlier, power is more consistent and sooner, so you don't feel the hit in the mid-range, 'cause you're already kinda there - if you get my drift? I like it. It's also a little quieter out the pipes if you want it . . . I mean easier to get it in that "quiet" range with the motor . . . like when I'm coming home late and don't want to wake the neighbors . . .
I went for a high-end speed run on an open road - up to 105mph (they said) and it was still pulling - felt good on the top.
Even though it's designed as a cam grind for "low compression motors" . . . I don't have any pinging or detonation problems with regular fuels.
I'd recommend this ANDREWS No. 1 for any stock or slightly modified panhead motor.
