It's been a few years, but I'll try to remember. These used to be one of those "unfair advantage" parts used in cost no object motors that had to meet the letter of the law, meaning no roller lifters. They weren't roller lifters but they used roller cam profiles giving the same advantage.
I don't recall exactly how much they cost,maybe $1500? Don't quote me on that, it was the first figure that popped into my head. Back then(1999) you had to buy them as a package. You sent them your cam, and they would have it coated.
There is a bit of "cool" factor to them, though. They feel like porcelain, but seem to weigh nothing! Spring rates could be lower to free up a little power.
That might be the one real benefit for a street motor, lower spring rates. Otherwise, rollers are "cheaper" and easier to obtain.

We have received (very vague) info that the ownership of this forum (and many others) is going to do some kind of major upgrade and/or "moving" the forum in the near future. Represented to us as "upgrading". Those of you who have been through something similar before already know that there's a...
So, I'm a bit uncertain of how long my 66 car sat before I obtained it. But I know for sure it was atleast 3 years. How many times it was ran, I'm not sure.
Anyhow, after a small carb mishap (some of you may have seen my other thread), I noticed when I tore the carb down there was a significant...
I have a 289/302 engine from 1968, and i am looking for small powerupgrades.
The Edelbrock 2122 camshaft kit seems like a nice upgrade to match my edelbrock intake and 500cfm carb.
But i have some questions:
-First of all, what parts is necessary to install with the cam? (Chain, springs...
