Anyone have good results with them. Also I thought I read somewhere though that you had to change the cast iron gear out if your running a hydraulic roller cam? I have a hydraulic flat tappet would I still need a different gear or is the cast iron compatible with a flat tappet? Thanks for your input!
I'm running an Ecurve on my 388 sbc and love it. A bit pricey, but I absolutely love the thing. Setup can't get any easier. Set it to lock, stab it in, fire the motor and just let it idle about 1300 rpm, adjust for max advance, shut the motor down, adjust the two switches to give you the desired curve and done.
I left the existing gear on rubbing against a 2201 Edelbrock hydro-roller cam and so far no problems.
