Read Jmarks post again, but I will say it for him. Do NOT waste your time on a flat tappet camshaft. You will pay more for a roller cam, but you are getting what you paid for. I have a comp roller cam for sale that has less than 5000 miles on it that works in factory blocks that came with a roller camshaft. There are few oils left that you can get that have zinc and other anti wear additives, without these additives a flat tappet cam will go flat in short order and the powdered metal will kill the rest of the engine and you will be starting over again. If you are interested in the cam I have let me know it`s going for a good price and there is nothing wrong with it, it will give you explosive low end torque as well as better gas mileage.
