Good stuff, thanks for sharing. Honestly, that doesn't look too bad. Worn a bit deeper than mine, but you had another 7,000 miles on them. In the car, under valve spring load, those weren't going...

Definitely looks worn, just more evenly, no doubt due to the full floating design letting that move around and spread evenly. I think the original idea of trunnion maintenance intervals should track...

I totally thought I was responding to 1JEWLDSS - oops. Yea if you've got the factory manifold BTR660s will be just fine. My bad, too many conversations going at once!

I think, given your manifold, you should be looking at more spring so you can run some more rpm. I don't remember if you swapped to LS3 hollow stem valves, but if not, even more spring pressure...

It's a good question - as I've seen both where they are totally fine, and others that are majorly chewed up. Unfortunately, I didn't pull the springs off the heads, as they weren't going back on the...

Yea - I don't think your wear is that much of an anomaly, just a magnification of what can happen if you really let these things go unchecked for probably close to double what their expected service...

Excellent point - I think I assumed (mistakenly) that you had CHE before we ended up chatting directly. It will be a good data point with your mileage being right in between my own and demonspeeds...

I would check a couple springs (at least 1 intake and 1 exhuast) at 20k miles of use, and then every 5k or so there-after. Get them in a spring pressure checker, and make sure you're getting the...

You have nothing to worry about with any of the bushed trunnion options. This isn't a dig at Smith Bros. in any way - I'm completely satisfied with their part and how it performed. It did exactly...

I would welcome someone with similar mileage tearing down a set of CHE trunnions to see how those look. I would imagine you'll see similar wear, but maybe they are a little bit different material...

LS3 tear down finding at 50k, 20k with GPI SS3 Cam, bushed trunnions, etc

Hey everyone. I thought I'd share with the group as this is the sort of information I feel like I was always trying (and struggling) to find as I was making decision on my last cam package - how...
