Lito, you may also want to take a look at these rocker arms if you're revving that high:

The crank wont like that very much. They're supposed to be susceptible to some serious harmonic resonance around 7200.

You need to call or email Paul. He is just about finished spending any more intellectual capital on this board.

If that's true, that's a shame.

I would suggest calling and being patient waiting for a return call. Last communication I had with him he said he was extremely busy with 788 emails in his inbox.

Winter is usually a pretty busy time for engine builders who work with race teams of any kind.

:dunno: I thought I was just stating the semi-obvious. He does really good work, and is known for it. He works with a few race teams. Race teams do teardowns and rebuilds in the winter when they're not racing. Therefore, he might be a little slow to get back to you right now. Patience is helpful in this case.

I've done business with Paul and he didn't make any promises that he didn't keep.

I heard from Paul not long ago, and like Jeremy said he's got a lot of stuff going on but it's all good - he's a knowledgeable guy that has good products, that means a lack of time because a lot of people try getting help when you're popular - and it varies with the season.

What was the website of the one reseller of his cams?

There are several that he shared his wisdom with. I only wish I had the opportunity to chat in person.

He's still alive? Excellent, he seems like a good guy, I really enjoyed some of our interactions here on the board. Last I heard, which was several years ago, he was very ill and reportedly near death. Since I hadn't heard anything since, I suspected the worst. But if he's alive and kickin', great for him and good for us!
