    I wonder if one of you knows this. I've just read a review from the early 60s of a road test of a 250 GTO. They comment on the 6 Webers (Tanner says 38s, article says 42s), 9.8:1 CR and an engine that is soggy below 3000, and goes like a missle above 5000 rpm. Does anyone know the cam timing and durations on this car? Just curious

    As a reference, I believe the 250 LM Berlinetta has cam timing as follows:
    Intake Op 46 BTDC, Cl 75 ABDC
    Exhaust Op 70 BBDC, Cl 40 ATDC

    the cam timing info I have for a 250 gto is:

    intake o/c : 42 btdc/72 abdc duration 294

    exhaust o/c : 70 bbdc/40 atdc duration 290

    overlap 82

    My specs for a 250 GT SWB have longer durations:

    intake: 44/75 duration 299
    exhaust: 74/43 duration 297
    overlap 83
