i have a set of these. the motor is goign in today, so in teh next couple of days, i'll give up some info.
for me, the out of the box issues with the cams and valvetrain are no worse than any cam i ever got for a small block chevy.
you're one of those people that whine about one crappy looking weld on a mid pipe, aren't you? it's under teh car, it doesn't leak. deal with it.
helix cams and valve train for 1000 bucks is a good deal, get over the ziploc baggie.
or send them to me, i will take them off your hands, free of charge, so you don't have to deal with them packaging, and you can go buy some Jun cams for 2 grand.
