Night Fury Cam/Head Question

I am looking for someone who is running the Night Fury cam that has machined their heads .030. If you have this set up I would like to ask you a few questions.

I know this post is kinda old, but I read in another post where Lethal stated that you could shave .030 with their cam.

Has anyone done this and what were the HP and Torque gains with their NF cam?

Leave the heads alone and do 3.91 gears, cold air kit, and good 2 inch headers.. If have the money do intake and tB and you'll dyno 500 plus rwhp in a M6

Thanks for the feedback. I have a ported tb and under drive already. What do you mean by intake, are you talking about a ie Fast intake? If so, I will skip the intake. Results seem mixed on those. I think I could have a bad lifter, so if I pull the heads, I want to consider my options while they are off.

Any more than .020 with this camshaft and you are pushing it.

I'd wanna measure it even at .010 over just to make sure the heads weren't overtightened or anything.

With some of these larger lift camshafts the 20 bucks for the length checker and an hour labor is well worth the squeeze.

GL and shoot me a message if we can be of service!
