5000 ?now that really sucks.didnt think it was a problem, although it took me a while to figure out they gave me a cam for a carburated 5.0 so i had to change up my firing order...it peaks at 5000rpm and cuts out like a rev. limiter? kinda gay, but should be fie when i get sme kinda boost in there...thanks
you would be better off with a abc cam than with that. where did you get that thing?well heres the thing they gave me flat lifters....they dont fit with my pushrods...so i still have the stock roller lifters in with the crane rr's and the car doesnt cut out just when i hit 5 grand it stops making power whatsoever...heres the spec sheet they gave me...i dont know how to read it,duration: int. 223.3 exh. 210 valve lift: int. .477 exh. .439 lobe sep/adv: 113.8
I'm amazed actually. Are those lifters they provided flat tappet or regular hydralics? Is the cam supposed to be a roller cam (let alone solidn or hyd.)? I can't believe that it will even run. You CAN'T interchange lifter styles between cams willy nilly. Really bad things happen.The fact that they provided different lifters with the cam and you used your stock hyd rollers is a BIG RED FLAG. Turn off the key and back up the bus. Contact your cam manufacturer and start from scratch.
I wouldn't give you a new cam or your money back, so I think he's being generous.so i called the cam place..this is what went down; (keep in mind im new to cams) i said it cuts power at 5g's and i used my lifters cause the ones you gave me and said would work didnt. he told me that my cam should be ground down by now from the roller lifters, its a flat tappet cam and what i did was all my fault and stupid. and he will grind me a free cam???? wtf my engine should be ****ed by now and he wants to grind me a new cam? thanks for nothng there is no way... im getting my money back and moving on, i dont want no cam from them. At least they could of warned me that what they gave me wouldnt work....and not to use roller lifters??? that i could of handled.
