Who is your "Most Trusted Cam Maker"

IF you were going to install a Camshaft and IF you were not going to degree it and trust it to be properly ground to specs, What manufacturer would you put your trust in?

ISKY! But why not degree it? Almost every cam company sells degree wheels must be a reason why.

Who is your "Most Trusted Cam Maker."

I have four Chet Herbert Roller cam and two have a complete Roller Rocker setup. The two oldest date back to the 1962 era and are still doing the job they were designed to do. Great Technical Support too!

Not going to say they are the best but i have a Comp in my 400/408 just have a custom grind done by Comp this time around the last one was in for probably 10 yrs or so, but i do think there are some co out there as good or better. Bullitt or Cammotion they are 2 pretty good cam grinders. JMO
And i can honestly say i had a very good experiance dealing with Comp the guy was awesome his name was Brad and even stayed in contact with me on every aspect of the deal and will still send a e-mail from time to time just to Bull**** some good people at Comp.

Like Cole sez. I have had dealings with Comp for years and Brad Drake is a great guy to deal with. I'm sure there are some great Companies out there but Comp is the only one I have dealt with several times.

Some on on this board hooked me up with Mike Jones @ Jones Cam Design. I cant say enough about him. Personal one-on-one service, and there when you have questions. I had a unique situation and he was knowledgable and helped me when techs from several other companies were picking from a catalog (Well jeez, I could have done that)

The only time I had a cam go in out of time was a result of the timing gear error, not the cam.
