Nobody has them everyone has them on Backorder.Wanted to buy a CompCams 69-400-8 or similar (custom grind on a 69-000-8), but their website says "available soon 2-4 weeks" for the past year+. This is for E85 build and have all the 109 short block ready
Anyone know where to buy performance roller cam?
The quick ramp cams need a lot more spring than the milder lobe ones. There really is no need for the quick ramp cams for 99% of these cars.I have been waiting for a custom hi lift quick ramp rate/ max area under the curve, roller from Comp since March 2020!!!!!!
They have putting me off from 2 weeks to 2 months at a time since then.
I bought a 214/ 214 (I think) .504 Comp street roller off the shelf for OVER retail plus shipping on about October 2021.
My motor and car should be ready in the next month or so. If I get my custom before the car and motor are done, I will sell the new street roller.
If not, I will install the new street roller, and depending on how the car runs, I will sell either the high lift, fast ramp custom cam new, or install it and sell the lightly used street roller. Stay tuned to see which is for sale.
I know Comp cams are worth the wait, I have a cam analyzer, and because of what I have seen and analyzed, (over 4 HUNDRED cams!) I only use Comp Cams!
Depending on duration at .050, and lift, a higher lift and faster ramp rate smaller cam may have the area "under the curve" and flow of a cam 1 or 2 sizes bigger! That allows more bottom end torque, higher stall, faster spool, better idle, drivabity, and lower emissions.
Some smaller and/or older companies actually sell cams that have higher lift and more duration than advertised, that way they can say our "XYZ cam makes as much power as a more expensive "ABC cam" but it is cheaper! What they DON'T say is :the idle, torque, spool, and drivability won't be as good.
The small companies that still grind cams from "cam masters" rather than CNC grinding centers, are more likely to have these issues. They buy old and worn masters from the bigger companies that have the newest CNC machines and can grind just about anything without a master. There is no free lunch.
