    I saw the solids. What is going on with the 455 roller cam project? Last I heard, there were problems with the fuel pump eccentric. I really wish TA Performance could update us once in awhile. How long does that take?:confused: Is that too much to ask?

    I talked them last week about this. They said that "as we speak" they are waiting for the blanks to come in. When I asked about price, I was told that it was going to be, basically, about $1,100 to get a roller cam blank, have it ground, and get the rollers. That's a ton of $$$ for the performance gain if you ask me. I'd rather put that toward heads which would most likely deliver more performance. But if you already have them and want to squeaze the most out of your engine, than it's another way to go.

    But, $1,100 is cheap if you read some of these articles in Popular Hot Rodding, CarCraft, etc. They spend way more than that on an exhaust system, intake, etc and gain about 15hp. What a waste IMOO.

    I have talked to steve at lsm and it isn't that exspensive there and they can custom grind a cam for you to your engine. ya you still have to buy the roller lifters and springs but $1100 no thanks.
