    Maybe one guy in my area running an aftermarket cam swap but he's making 1200+ RWHP. Very big expense for the little bit of return.

    I'm going to have to build a motor because I loss a piston. Just was thinking since it is apart. But I can't find anyone that even has cams for an 18

    Comp just released them. Not sure when they’re actually available though

    Mmr has some cam options listed when building a long block. Not sure of the specs on them though.

    I run L&M intake cams. Apparently they have me about 80whp when combined with my TVS

    I looked [email protected] up thanks. Cams are kinda expensive for just two cams though. I will do some research

    The Comp cams are also intake only. I would not expect them to be any cheaper

    I'd hazard a guess the Comp Cams are the L&M design,, I called Mike at L&M a couple months ago and asked about power gains and he didn't say, just that every combo is different and a lot depends on the tuning.

    I will call [email protected] tomorrow and see what they say. I just figured with the motor apart I should probably do them. With our shitty 91 in Ca cams can give me a little power without getting more boost

    Engines are advancing further these days. We're almost at a point where it will be useless to throw aftermarket cams in. I wonder if we reached that point already.
