When my car made 780 it was the last of 5 or 6 pulls on the dyno and the IAT's were about 125. At that temp I don't pull any timing. Iat's on the dyno don't really tell the story because you are...

There are plenty of documented cases of other failures including stock cams from the factory. I am not defending comp, and not saying they don't possibly have a QC issue. I am just stating facts.

You know 1000 times more about cams than I ever will and I respect your thoughts on this.
I would just like to see if most of the cams that are going bad, are of a more aggressive nature.

If you have the cam card, the numbers of the lobes are on it. You can look in the catalogue and see what lobes they are.

I agree. But let's face it. Comp probably sells 50 cams (if not more) to 1 of anyone else. What would be interesting is to see what lobes these failures use. I don't recall hearing nearly as many...

This goes for any build. If you add power, and don't address the fuel system and all related systems, you will have a problem. That is not a eforce issue.

A motor doesn't blow up because it has an eforce on it. It doesn't know what kind of blower is making the boost. I ran my stock shortblock very hard for a while with the 3 inch pulley. No problems. ...

No reason why a cam with those specs cant run properly. I would bet its a tuning issue, assuming there are no vacuum leaks. Idle air flow probably.

Not an expert here but seems pretty aggressive, and might be hard (or impossible) to get it not to surge at all.

Another thumbs up for Julio. I broke the led light on install and he sent me out another one, and a spare, immediately with no questions. Best service anywhere, on top of the best meth system as well.
