    95% sure it is a COMP cam.

    Who designed the specs? Who knows....

    Sounds like comp lobes to me too. I know they do a X-ER lobe on a 234/598. The exhaust lobe sounds close to TSP's MS3/4 exhaust lobe which is a 242/609.

    Ah thanks.

    Can't use the cam due to the possibility of having to flycut my pistons with the heads I am getting.

    Time to find a new cam

    Just a quick guess....but that cam should clear a stock type head set-up without flycutting.

    And like I mentioned, most likely a COMP cam. They are pretty much the grinder most shops use.

    It was a toss up between that cam and the TSP 224r. I decided the Patriot cam because of money haha
