Intake duration directly increases power period 189 duration is just TOO small. exhaust duration indirectly increases power by reducing pumping losses.

Look at the smallest cam Cam Motion makes for the PD: 220 /236
"to be used in completely stock vehicles"
That is an intake change of 31 degrees and an exhaust change of 13.

Somebody has Camdoctor and can give a figure on how much a LT1 cam add in HP or not. IMO the LT1 cam produces more HP i.e. the ingestion of more intake charge. Would be interesting to find out...

Since there is so little here on either cam, I consider this angles dancing on pins. I am NOT saying the LT1 is an optimal supercharger cam, obviously it is a NA cam.
