Too sharp a "descent" for example, can cause the valve to float, or even bounce


Float yes, bounce is from valve springs whose resonance frequency matches the rpm of the cam, hence double valve springs. Smile | :)

But the subtlety of widening and advancing/retarding the cams is very interesting. And my alfa is producing too much torque low down and not revving, so its a good bet the last cam belt change was done wrong. Time to take a look.....
