No, "ripped" means the car was quick.
Search Techtonics' website for their dyno graphs. Remember that peak horsepower gain isn't always what you are looking for. Don't just look at the published peak horsepower gains for any cam, because another cam may give up a few horsepower at peak but make much more everywhere else. You want the fattest torque (and thus horsepower) curve you can get. Greater average horsepower through the rev range means more faster.
