He is wanting to have a cam ground to these specs for his engine. Not the actual lunati marine cam for his engine just the same specs. JMO

If you go to lunati's website its not just for marine applications it's also for street engines it just says it can work for that application as well as excellent for injection systems etc. If I wanted that on a retrofit I would have it in my hands right now on a nice billet core but I need the stepped nose cam end for my setup. I originally went with a 60120 ( same as the 60110) lt1-lt4 grind cause it has the stepped nose end.

Only issue is the dowel pin is a little to long but it can be shortend and can be made to work with my engine setup. Anyways long story short Lunati said that don't have that cam core in a billet with the option for the ever wear gear to be pressed on the back. Lt 1-4 cams are the same as the oem late model roller cams except certain years came with a longer dowel pin and a hole in the center for the drive gear for the water pump I believe. I got a crane cam in my engine now but I want to go a little milder for good stop and go street manners.

Well guys I got a deal made with bullet cams and they had no problem with making a cam for me. The are not using a 8620 billet core or anything like that just a factory 1020 roller steel core which is good enough for me. I just told him i did not want a cast roller cam and now I am good to go. I gave him the specs on the lunati cam and he is going to make it similar to it but tweak it some.
Thanks guys for the leads
Eric
