Re: 496 Cam ?
In the beginning of the thread, you stated that your car is more street use, so unless you are willing to shell out the coin to do it right on a solid roller, I would go with the solid ft. What I mean is this - Isky Red Zone lifters with EZ Roll option, a Rev Kit, and a stud girdle. The lifters have no needle bearings, and order them with the street oiling option. The rev kit keeps the lifters in constant contact with the cam, so no pounding during lash. The stud girdle just adds extra insurance. I did all this on the current 10.5-1 496. I had tons of P-V clearance.
I am building a second BBC, and it will be using the same solid ft cam I just mentioned, or maybe the new and improved version, Lunati 60243, and using Crower EDM holed lifters.
