What benefits of having twin cam?

In theory the twin cam allows the designer to create ideal intake and exhaust valve angles while minimising the weight of the reciprocating valve train. This will allow higher rpm operation and maximise power.In Practice: Only high end high power engines make good use of this.

What is a Twin cam?

A twin cam is an engine that has two cam shafts (which open and close the valves). The most common reasons for two camshafts are: If a V-shaped engine design uses one cam shaft for each side of the V - obviously, if a V engine has overhead cams, you would need a cam at the top of each side of the...
