OK... well, my solid cam is gone and will make a lovely lamp.
Enough crying over spilled milk!

I have some serious time limitations... so Im going to pull that cam out the front, wash down the motor and do a swap very fast as I want to go racing on the 12th.
Thank god I am on holidays starting tomorrow.
Soooo, anyone have a recommendation for an OTS cam that would work well with my combo and be comparable to the solid that went? My solid was custom ground and I just dont have time for that.
Solid specs were...
536 int and 545 exh
236 and 242
110.0

Thanks!!!

Why would a hyd break in any better?

Maybe time to go hyd roller if you think flat tappet isnt the way to go?

A hydraulic flat tappet cam will probably be at its limit if you want to maintain with 7K shifts.

Also, the hydralic cam can run flat too during break-in.

A roller cam is superior, but of course they cost more. Modern hydraulic rollers can take 7000+ with the right valvetrain.

Try calling Comp cams. let them give you a couple of hyd. cams specs for your car and its combo.
But i think they way to go is a custom grind for your combo.
