    anyone ran this cam before?

    just curious if anyone has ran this cam before. My engine build is setup for it as far as I can tell. I have it installed and the PTV clearance is good. Upgraded everything that is recommended and balanced the lower end. Comp suggested this cam for my style of driving I will be doing.

    Just curious if any one has any history with it.

    Comp cam 54-428-11 Grind #XR281HR
    Hydraulic Roller Lifter
    High RPM street strip

    RPM Range 2200-7200
    Timing .006
    Lobe center angle 112
    Intake centerline 110

    Valve lash is hydraulic on both
    Duration intake 281 ex 283
    Duration .050" intake 228 ex 230
    valve lift intake 0.571 ex 0.573
    lobe lift intake .0336 ex 0.337

    Black bird, nothing on the engine is stock, the rocker arms arent 1.8 though they are 1.72. The pistons have -3 reliefs in them.

    Also what other mods do you have to allow your rpm range? Valve train? bottom end?

    How did you go about tuning the computer after the cam install.

    One last thing I am not sure what 918s are, is that 1/4 time? I am not much of a drag racer and have never been to the strip.

    ok those are just bee hive springs. I am running 26921 dual springs. I am trying to get a rough comparison about these engines in a chevy to what I should expect out of it for my 944.
