DOHC
DOHC = Double over head cam
SOHC = single over head cam

What is this thing and what does it do?

cams push the valves

valves let air in and out of the engine


more cams = more valves = more efficiency and power.

thats it in lamens terms... i could write an essay on cams if i had the time and modivation.
