There are just too many good hydraulic camshafts and performance lifters available to even consider a solid lifter version.

Now - if you were going to tell me that you want bragging rights, the sounds of a solid lifter camshaft, then that's a different story. And yes, you do have to wade in the splattered oil occasionally. How often - well that's not easy to say?? It depends on the miles you drive if it's a DD, how you drive, are you racing weekly as you can adjust for barometric pressure and humidity, etc. I still have my tried and true P&G Valve Gapper from my racing days - and it sure is pretty and shiny even 40 years later, but I don't mind it a bit that I'll never use it again
