I just looked through my summit catalog and got off the phone with their tech people and yeah, retro roller stuff is damn expensive.

If I go with the 305, I'm looking at a Lunati Voodoo cam (.437 in./.454 exh)
LUN-60100 at summit for reference.

In the 350, I'm looking at the Voodoo roller cam with a (.507/.515)
This one is LUN-60120 at summit.

I'll post the specs for the motor in a different thread when I get to it, so I guess in this thread I was looking for the pros-cons of the roller rockers vs. roller tips for my planned build and which one would be more reliable over the long haul.
