New Cam Advice

If you are looking for long term longevity you might want to shy away from an off the shelf street series Comp solid roller cam,turns out they arent made from billet steel as I had thought they were, but are made from an austempered ductile iron which has a hardened surface that can wear.If it has an 8 as the last part number this is what it is.I went from an older Crane solid roller to the XR280R Comp grind and was a bit dissapointed,it lost on the bottom end,had a bit more on the top end,but sure didnt feel as good.I`m going to be changing cams next rebuild and I dont think I will be using another Comp Cams product.
