So the late closing inlet will still have reversion out the stacks on an IR intake.

One camshaft grind that sticks in my head is for the Cosworth DFV 3.0 V8. 68/86 for the inlet, 86/68 for the exhaust. 136 degrees of overlap. LSA 99. IR intake, Lucas mechanical injection.

Extreme example, I know.

Wow. The intake closed at 86? What was the reversion like?
