Mixing cam and lifter brands???

Is there any reason why I can't mix different cam and lifter manufacturers? I have found a great deal on the cam I need for my 454. As long as they are new, can I run GM, Crane, Crower ect. new hydo lifters with my Comp High Energy new cam? Thanks!

There should be no problem as long as the lifters are NEW. I've run TRW Solid Lifters on Sigerson Flat tappet cams and Crower Rollers on Comp Cam Mechanical Rollers ... etc

Re: Mixing cam and lifter brands???

Technically, different brands intermixed won't matter. There is only a handful, if that, of companies that actually make the lifters. The individual companies buy them and put them in their specific brand box. You might have a warranty issue though, if you have a cam failure and used another brand lifter (e.g, crane lifters on a comp cam), then try to go back to the manufacturer for a credit.

I've never had a problem with a GM flat tappet lifter, whether hydraulic or solid.
