Re: Lunati Cam

GOOD cam's, imho..

Never used one tho..

And UDHarold created their VooDoo line so they GOTTA be GOOD in my book!!

Re: Lunati Cam

Do a search on Lunati at www.teamchevelle.com. UDHarold posts there quite frequently. I ended up installing a Lunati hydraulic flat tappet cam after reading all of the positive comments.

Re: Lunati Cam

Here's a couple reasons to buy them-

Harold now works for Lunati, used to be lead designer for Comp....before they came out with the XE line is my understanding
Comp seems to have some quality control issues based on what I've read accross several forums including the vette forums.
The idle quality is supposedly quite good.

I like the Crane Max Velocity 272 cam and the Lunati 60102 which is actually a little milder on the spec sheet than the XE. I found this searching here Lunati Voodoo Solid Flat Tappet Cams if you want more information.

Re: Lunati Cam

Here we go with the XE line again...

A comparison of my XE268 to Lunati Voodoo 60104lk

I/E Duration Comp 230/236 Lunati 233/241
Advertised Comp 274int/286exh Lunati 276int/284exh
Lift factory Comp 487/490 Lunati 504/525
lobe Comp 110 Lunati 110

Now my question on this,,,,They seem similar but the Lunati has a slight edge on the lift so wouldn't that make this cam more prone to lobe failure due to the distance of the actual lift when it closes. ????? Do you get what I am trying to say ???. What makes a similar cam in grind not as prone to failure ???? Because one is Comp Cam and the other is Lunati.

Sorry all but I am getting tired of every time I read a Cam posting someone chimes in about ( I have read on other posts about the XE failure so stay away ).. No offense Steve.

Re: Lunati Cam

UDHarold did not design the Voodoo solid ft's...he was long gone from Lunati when they came out.

Comp is known for their "flat" tappet cams....

Re: Lunati Cam

Right, Harold only did the hy- VooDoo cams.

Right, a lower lift cam will create less wear and tear on the valvetrain and lobes vs a higher lift cam, only b/c the over the nose valvespring pressure has to be higher to control the valves.

If you go back into Isky's e-cat., you will see their older cams vs their newer cams.

For example...

Isky's old 270 HL hy-cam at 270/216, 108, .445" lift vs their newer 270 Mega Hy-cam at 270/221, 108, 465" lift.

This is why I always ramble on about using the older cams like the CC 268HE and the Crane/Cam Dynamic 272/272 Energizer in about 10 to 1 CR'd 327 and 350 street engines b/c they run darn GOOD and don't tear up the valvetrain.
