    Cam lobe wear. How much is too much???
    1) If it is your current 535a?
    2) If it is on a head that you are buying to replace head with worn cam lobes?

    Why not just get one of the aftermarket performance ones? I think it was Jeff N who mentioned that Ireland (?) has one for < $200 (big ?).

    best, whit

    shrick cams? between a cam and a chip things will be happening quick! On my V8 the cams dont turn on till after 4k so I dont think I would gain much...probably why they arent available.

    Itīs easy to see when can wear is too much, grooves on the " chrome" center part of the lobe indicate clearly that the cam is worn. If you want to upgrade to a fast road cam and a chip, the M30 will be a blast , especially with the kick down function. Do always buy a cam kit including stronger/stiffer springs.

    Fast cams for the M60.....

    They are available from Bilas tuning in Germany, a very known and respected tuner in Europe. They don' t come cheap though. Take a look for youselves.
