    Any of you guys run a Howards Hyd. Roller cam & lifters or thier roller rockers? I'm thinking of running the CL120265-12 cam & lifter combo ( Advertised Duration 294/302, Lift .620/.620) in a 496 with Brodix rect. port heads RR BB-2 PLUS 201618, full roller rockers 1.7, 10.25 to 1, RPM Airgap and 950HP carb. I'm hoping for 650 HP @ the crank and mid to low 10's at the track.
    Thanks

    I'm running a full howards valvetrain on my SBC. No probs at all, seems to be great parts. I have about a year and about 9K miles on the parts so far.
    249/252@.050" solid flat tappet SBC cam
    Oiling/edm burnt solid lifters
    1.6 ratio, 7/16" stud roller rockers
    1.437" dual springs with a damper

    Here's a few pics

    We love that cam. We run them in Oval port headed 496 with mild work, 10.1, air gap, quick fuel 780cfm carb and make an easy 585-600HP / 610-615TQ. Morel makes the lifters so you cant go wrong. I say do it.

    Howards Cam company is the absolute no. 1 cam builder in the industry at this time. As Notalent says, the lifters are made by Morel, and are top notch. Cam companies vary wildly in the quality of there products for sure.
