I had a Job at work last year pulling the Engine from a 1967 Olds 442 Convertible Clone.
It was a base Cutlass with a 330 Olds 4bbl V8.
Engine was sent out to be rebuilt local.
A Mondello kit purchased.
Turned out to be a Shit China Kit.
Reassembled the car.
Replaced the Powerglide with a Turbo 350 & High stall.
Ok Power but not real impressive.
Long tube headers & 3" X pipe full exhaust.

A week went by & Cam went flat.
Not my doing. I never built the engine. Just installed & used supplied Comp Cams break in oil 30W.
Owner was pissed. Pulled Engine.
Removed Intake. Found China Lifters from Mondello New guy owner
A nightmare dealing with that new Assfuck .
Rebuild again.
Ok now 1-1/2 years later.

sad truth maximize profit margins at any cost and ruin a great company selling inferior products under a once quality name. I will be running crower solid lifters with face oiling with my cam change.

I have 2 sets of those Crower Cool Face Solid Lifters here John.
One for Pontiac V8 & One for Chevy.
They now have Crower Micro Finish Cool Face Lifters. Shine like a Silver Mirror.
Didn't opt for micro finish.
Something to consider $ option.

I am not gonna opt either but will be happy knowing that my $150 on lifters is well spent then just cheaping out and buying the cam kit from lunati which comes with their cheap lifters. I saw they have similar lifters with an oil hole in the center or offset but more money. I would have gone with a crower camshaft but there was a 20hp difference in the low and mid rpms where the lunati shined. I think it was one of Harold Brookshire's designs. I have diamond paste I use to micropolish my airbrush needles it is equalivlent to 200,000 grit sand paper.

Its too bad We All Don't have an Engine Dyno to use.
Everyone has the Best Cams. Claimed.
So Far Isky & Crower I have found best.
True Racers that win often use Isky Cams.
It has been impossible to convince any online.

I agree with you. Magazine hype I don't believe with its a product they got from a company with three full page ads in there magazine and a pop up banner on there page. I hear ya I did allot of searching around and talking to people. I get lunati there ok. Crower and Isky are favorites. Stay away from comp they are the worst. This is by people that race I am from a racing town the 1/2 mile oval and drag strip was 15 min from my house as a kid. Now a half hour away. I talked to gentleman who designed the ecu he favored Crower.

Id add ERSON and CRANE to the approved vendor list (BTW crane makes several G.M. cams)Lunati Crower and ISKY all 5 vendors produce good quality cams, and yes I personally avoid comp simply because of the HORRIBLE & INCONSISTENT at times LUDICROUSLY UNINFORMED tech support,
at least its been my experience that if you ask a question about a product from the other 5 vendors you get either a correct answer or if the guys unsure,the guy on the phone, will tell you he will call you back with an answer , you could talk with comps tech support guys 5 times and Id bet get 5 different answers, as a result I have used those other listed five vendors, and most of the time CRANE,CROWER AND ERSON as I find that once I calculate the cam specs I need at least one of those three will have something close to what I,m looking for
