I have actually ground my own cams in some wild experiments in the past, I even ground a pretty wild profile with my Briggs&Stratton lawn mower. I made some flops, and some cams were just amazing at the results.
If I still had my machining equipment, I know what I want. I would leave the duration alone, and I would leave the lobe center configuration alone and bump up the lift by .020 on all four lobes. This would be about equal to tearing off the head and machining it to accept the bigger valves from Schnitz Racing. The attractiveness of the cams is that it is a bolt in upgrade, very quick to do.
If I can get my hands on a set of good stock cams, I will shave off .020 of the base circle, get cam shims that are .020 thicker than what I have now, and give it a try. I would enjoy that way more then buying someone elses design.
