One big thing is proper cam lube and proper break-in procedure. Many guys think it is a waste of time to take the 20 minutes to break in a cam. I actually had one "engine god" tell a friend to set the lash and take the car out and race it. "If it's gonna blow, break in won't help." I have not lost a cam in any engines I have done and I adhere strictly to break-in procedure and dumping the break-in oil after 30 minutes.
