RPI cam or Crane pro's & cons

What are the pro's & con of each? I have a lifter that is driving me nuts, I thought I might replace the cam as well. Any thoughts???

Check out www.v8engines.com, the guy has a lot more experience with the engine than most of us. You're totally correct that replacing the cam at the same time as the lifters is a good idea since usually if a lifter is shot, so is the lobe it's riding on.

He raves about Crower cams. RPI is pricey pricey from what I've seen. Either way, make sure to get the matching springs if it's a non-factory cam.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
