Thanks guys what's your thoughts on solid cams have not had one in years are they a pain setting valves all the time or is it a more once a year deal my mates not using a new xs 282 comp solid good power range 2500 to 6500, 246/251 I think at 50 I think not a crazy big cam also been offered a ch4b edlebrock intake the street Dom is better still hey for a stroker , that xe 274 that's not a bad cam I run that in my 65 gto with a 400 Pontiac engine , 2500 stall and 3.42 rear good strong mid range but you had nearly 100 more cubes sounds like you like the new cam then how's the idle sound , just looked at the spec on your new cam that you run ,108 lobe would make it sound nice , I like lunati they look a good cam
I love the solid roller I have. A solid roller is about the best cam for mondo power. After a few years of minor adjustments, the lash has not changed in last 5 years. Now I check it every two or three years, and a couple, out of 16, might be a half of a thousands out. Running 5W-30 full synthetic is a big factor too, since the valve train is the last area to receive oil on startup, and synthetic flows twice as fast as dyno oil, for same weight. So, less metal wear means less lash adjustment needed. My fuel pump push rod, after 15 years, only showed 5/100 inch wear, again due to synthetic oil I believe. Also, setting lash it pretty easy, once you do it a couple times.
