you have seen this thread right?
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2642831


If you cams look ok maybe it was just from the bearing material getting in the heads....did you drive for long after the spun bearing?

why not the comps.

I had GSC failure and went back with OEM, I had to buy new buckets to get the lash in spec... even if the buckets were usable. Most of my exhaust were in spec and are being reused.

My question. why go back to stock when your cams seem fine? If you do go back to stock you will most likely need to replace buckets.

I have such bad luck with engines, if the scaring and heat marks is a sign of failure i would like to catch it now,

They look fine. If you want to be 100% sure send them out don't ask the internet. Get new buckets and move on with your build. You said bearing failure which means oiling was not up to par so I'd say there's your problem, not your cams.

I has over 80 psi past 5k .... till the bearing failed, 50 weight oil

maby its possible the short drive home when it failed would heat the buckets?

Its great that you had 80 psi at that tapped location. But that doesn't mean you had the proper amount of flow to create a proper oil film.
