    Hard to answer your question. This is like asking which car should I buy, a Hyundi or a Mercedes or a Cadallic or a Ford or a Chevy.

    You are asking about some common variety mass market production camshaft companies vs one of the most respected custom cam designers and makers in the business.

    The answers so far are referring two good companies as well.

    Mass market cam companies for the most part are still stuck in the dark ages and are using Masters' to trace the cam lobe profile with while it is being ground. Most of those machines are the reliable but old school Berco Cam Grinders. The pattern has to be there before it can be tracced.

    A very few of the more modern custom cam companies are using at least a Ladis 3L or 5L CNC Computerised Cam grinder that cuts the cam pattern off of a computer programmed lobe design,

    Most good cam companies are using the 8620 billet for cores. A few of the better ones are using the 8620 Bearing Grade material,.

    I much prefer LSM to any other but they also cost more.
    Cam Motion has a good reputation.
    Ultradyne/Bullet have a good reputation.

    Thanks for all the help on this. Sorry, I guess I should of been more specific with my truck pulling motor. It is a 540 BBC 14.5:1 compression, Dart 355 cnc heads, Edelbrock Super Victor cnc ported by Reher Morrison, and 1250 Dominator.

    IMO, any of the up to date cam guys can get ya what ya need. As long as you are very decriptive on the motor. I don't know about comp cams though. Heard they went kinda south of the border. But I also would talk to good engine B4 I would talk to a cam co.. My opinion some of the engine guys do a better job of getting specs. they also have more connections. I ordered a new cam for mine from shop ans the cam co. they deal with kinda surized me. Erson cams. But i would call a shop 1st and get one from them on whomever they deal with.

    BTW, where do you run at, area??

    I have heard that Erson does a pretty good job too. I am out in W.V. Are you an Outlaw puller or a brush puller guy?

    Sounds like a good comination you have. We are limited to a conventional heads. I have not been doing this for too long and I happen to get the 355 heads cheap from a friend of mine. I am trying to a little research and see how much I can do with these heads and intake. I would like to knock on the 1000 hp door, but I think I will need a little more squeeze and some head work.
