Try delta or oregon cams. Isky, jones, and comp MAY do it for you.

I would think any machine shop that grinds shafts should be able to do it. Ther's a national Inliners club that could help also speed parts.

Oregon did an inline 6 cam for me, just received it and haven't installed it yet. Turnaround was about a week and a half. It was for a nissan ohc l28e engine. About $100 for the regrind. Delta quoted me the same.

I also just had Oregon Cams do one,Chevy 6.They are pleasant and answer your technical questions.
The only limitation is the length of the cam ,some shops can handle only 32 inch length

If you want something performance oriented try lsmeng.com . Not sure if they can do it, but they can make all sorts of BIG camshafts for v-8's that aren't possible with a regrind.

Regrind Buick Straight 8 camshaft

I'm sure there are many cam regrinders out there with a good reputation. I use the Crower firm and they have a good recipe for whatever you wish to do. Increase torque? Increase HP? Increase RPM's? Or???
