been beat by a Nana lately?
Hey y'all. We had an install day yesterday and I had my new cam put in. Bullet racing cam 224/224 .561 lift with 112lsa. Sounds mean as HELL!!! But turned out there is a problem. We ran into a problem with parts, as the valve stem seals that come stock on the 04 GTO are built right into the seats. And they wouldn't fit into the dual springs that came with the cam. Of course, no auto parts store is gonna have valve stem seals on a Sunday, so the new cam was put in, stock springs left in place, with plans to do the springs as soon as I can. On the drive home though, it started tapping really bad. Fortunately, one of the mechanics that did the work was right behind me and we stopped in the parking lot of Taco Bell in Matthews so he could pull the valve covers and make sure I hadn't bent a rod... which I had not. The tap comes and goes and he seems to think it's a collapsed lifter and the plunger is getting stuck down from time to time. Thought I'd attach a brief video though. It sounds awesome!!! I've got Kooks 1 3/4" headers to go on too, but we didn't have time yesterday.
