THIS IS FALSE! I'm going to put a rest to which cam is Intake and which is Exhaust.
vvvv Look at my cam pictures below vvvvThis is my EXHAUST cam which clearly has a 1 right above the giant "E" making the above statement false that the 1 is for and intake.
Now here is 2 pictures of my INTAKE Cam:
This is the other side of the same cam showing a giant I. (Look closely)
As u can see the about quote is false however, there are instances when sometimes the about quote is true making deciding which cam is intake and exhaust a confusing one. Hence why everyone is confused like no other.
The absolute best way to decide which cam is which, should be decided by the dowel pins on the front side of the camshaft, where the cam sprocket is located.
If the dowel pin lines up with the 1st cam lobe it is the INTAKE cam.If the dowel pin does not line up with the 1st lobe it is the EXHAUST cam.Here is the best diagram to go by. (as previously mentioned):
