Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here are the most commonly asked question we get

How do I place an order?


For first-time engine re-builders or if you are at all unsure, call us before sending your cam so that we can verify that the cam profile you have chosen will work best for your intended application. If you are an experienced engine builder, please include a note describing which profile you would like. If you would like to order a new billet cam you can just call us with your order.

We are here from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.

Feel free to call even if you would just like some advice.

But, Absolutely no marketing calls, please!
