Also if you compaired one cam to another and it wasn't a parallel test then you cannot say for sure what the results are...more agressive flat to a mild roller....

One thing to figure in..... If you loose a lobe on a flat tappet cam and need to remove the entire engine,dis-assemble, remove cam bearings and freeze plugs hot tank,grink or polish crank, new main and rod bearings...... The $600 for the roller starts looking like a deal!!!!!IMO

Don't forget - plenty a guy has fragged a roller lifter as well!! It happens. In fact, Comp Cams says that you should periodically check the rollers, axles, bearings for cracks, wear, etc when you get a set of their Magnum lifters.
