hey guys

so idonno who all knows I had my car cammed by a local shop by me not this past winter but the winter before by DaSilva motorsports and after I had a buddy of mine swap it out to a btr stage 4 n/a cam Thursday I was extremely disappointed at how they installed my cam and not only was it not the cam they said they gave me but the lifters where not at the proper tq specs some where much tighter then others the valve cover gaskets wherent even on the covers properly the cam case bolts there was 2 of them seazed in took 4 hours to remove. the specs I was told was 230/238 .608 / .612 at 115lsa when on the cam we took out btr 231/363 248/350/120+5 witch is a cam for a blower or turbos not an N/A cam. will post some pics in a few minutes

There's a guy with a green Camaro on Facebook Camaro page that just had his built by them. He's happy so far lol. Justin I believe you no someone else that had plenty of issues with Dasilva. MO6. Anyways, y did you upgrade the cam already? Were you having issues? I would like a daily cam but I don't want to loose my warranty just yet now do I have the funds for it yet lol. Hope the weather clears up soon so we can meet up.

You need to multiply the lift numbers 363 and 350 by 1.7 (ratio of the rocker arms) to get the valve lift. That's the lift of the cam lobe you stated.

I'm the guy with the green Camaro, I had DaSilva Motorsports do all my work and I'm super happy with the end result. I can say this.. the car runs great and makes good power. Manny treated me very well and I can't thank him enough. The install was top notch and believe me I looked it over carefully. All the wiring was neatly done to perfection just like it should. The price he quote me was the price I paid, No surprises.

Here's another DaSilva Motorsport Review. I felt about the same the night before.

This thread was cleaned up because members had properly reported it as devolving into name calling and insults. And because multiple vendors are using the site without site sponsorship. Both are violations of site rules.
