You were replying at the same time as me. So you are saying this is not uncommon and could be correct. I agree that it does appear that it would make a durable grind as it is a low ramp rate equating into lower pressures on the lifter/cam mating surfaces, push rods, rockers and valve stems.

If the Pat Kelly DCR number is accurate, then is 6.7 DCR a problem?
