Who ever set up the cam either just put then in and did not check them or
check them and did not have a clue what to do with the numbers. Those number
work in something like oil cooled 1100 or fj1200. They will not work very
well in a sv. The cam looks a bit long on the duration 
Whets your mechanical comp did anyone try to port the heads. Do you know the
Deck heights.

New day, new numbers. The intake opens at 12 and closes at 50 and the
exhaust opens at 30 and closes at 11. Works out to 109/99.5 so I guess
someone was looking for peak horsepower at the expense of some midrange
and bottom end. Thanks again for the help guys.
