    My understanding is that hyd roller lifters are not ready yet, price quoted around $385?

    By Mike T in post #31:

    Folks, The 350 hyd roller cam cores will be the first to be finished. We are hoping to have them sometime in Oct. The Nailheads should be second and this time the 455 will be last. So those that have interest please call and place your order. No deposit needed at this time. We will call you back when the part is ready to ship. The first run will only be 50 cams. This should open the door for modern day cam profiles and help all the cam wear issues. We thank all of you that have already called.
    p.s. Hyd roller lifters should be around $385.00

    last i heard the lifters were a tad cheaper the the roller core, but also said he was working on a better price

    Any thoughts on one for the 215/300/340? I might be interested in something with lift under .500 (rod clearance is a concern).

    Default Re: 350 Hyd roller cams, any interest?

    just a couple more questions..

    what's it going to cost to get the cores ground to specific profile?

    and will the current cam stuff work with the roller cam, such as the grooved cam bearings...or will those be specific also?

    285 for roller cam core
    ??? for ground profile
    385ish for roller lifters
    ??? roller cam bearings? or reg ts grooved casm bearings
    ??? roller cam thrust plate?

    any new ETA for the cores??

    thanks again
    Mike

    what center line did you guy's have them set up on. Most likely for a hyd. roller not an issue But the 455 solid roller core I just got from your dad was on a 108 and we couldn't buid the cam we wanted for the blower car. We had to give up duration to get the center line out to 114. Sorry to kind of jack the thread but we are doing a small blower 350 for my sons car and if we get aggresive we may want to try a roller in it.

    Bob,
    If these are cores, can't they be ground on a range of center lines? I can't wait for the 455 version. I've already spoke to Scott Brown about grinding me something for my car.

    Will you have any plug and play units available? If not, what additional costs for the grind can we figure?
    Thanks

    Larry yes thats why I said for the 350 it was most likely not an issue. But the 455 blank we got was ruff lobe also but when you try and move a 108 to 114 or 115 you have to rotate the lobe so far it doesn't leave you enough lobe to have alot of duration. On a blow thru deal you don't really need allot of lift but we like to get duration on them with a 114 or 115 centerline. ANd if we go after a 350 like we have my big block I just don't want to have the same issue. We have left some HP on the table I'm afraid is all.

    Current 455 cam parameters are .320" to .430" lobe lift and 108' to 112' lobe separation, 106' to 114' depending on amount of lobe lift. Not sure what the 350 parameters are, I think max lobe lift is around .360" I will find out about the lobe separation. Also I believe these cams have the 4 - 7 swap.

    Thanks Mike we must have gotten one on a 108 we got it as close as we could to what we were after. they put it on a cam doctor and built the specs based on what we could squeeze on it. Thanks for the info though. Like I said before I don't think the 350 stuff will run into the same issue.

    Are you referring to the 455 cams? I recall that was in a 455 cam poll, don't recall it being mentioned here. Great to see these are in now. Any update on the lifters?

    Dad typed that post and said to me he thinks that there's a 4 - 7 swap on the 350's I'll double check with him.

    Mark has been playing around with some computer simulation and the Poston 114 cam is the best suited to the turbos so far with the TA 212 beig the next best.

    yea, the turbo mustang forum chose the gs114 over the ta212 also

    i wonder how a slightly more agressive version of the ta turbo 6 profiles would do?

    No, I haven't had any contact with TA since Mike Jr posted the pics here. As I recall they were going to call/email those who signed up for the pre-order, to finalize the sales.
