lunati cam

Does anyone have any experience with these cams. I've heard that these cams have a rattle to them at idle but goes away after higher rpms. Any feedback will be helpful.

I run em and I like em,'' have a rattle to them at idle'' I really can not speak to that cause between the sound of roller rockers and a lumpy grind tossing the car from side to side , I have never heard or experienced that . I do have a cam button installed maybe that elements this '' rattle '', and the fix in so to speak..

I am always ask what the cam is so they are dis-stink sounding and radical, gets the ears listening .. hope this give you some more information to chew on

Obtw: too lumpy will not allow for the use of power brakes, a separate vac supply will cure that ..

I'm running a Lunati solid roller and love it as well.

What the heck do you mean "rattle"????

by rattle I guess I mean you can hear the cam if that makes any sense. The truck makes excellent power but i've never used one. The guy I bought the truck from and the engine builder supposedly used a lunati cam.
