Not trying to dedge up an old post, but I though I'd give Comp Cams a pat on the back. I lost a lobe on the 294S I was running after almost 4000 miles and 3 yrs later. I called, explained what had happened. They offered to take a look at the cam to tell me why it had failed. They could not come up with a reasonable answer and after a lot of talk back and forth they are replacing the cam and lifters.
Cudos to Comp Cams on this one.
