Oil in the intake from a cam???

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Yes. When the cam is ground with a base circle so low that the lifters uncover the oil port for said lifters it can generate 60+psi oil spraying right onto a gasket intended to seal only against intake vacuum. It also results in low precious oil pressure. This cam uses a lift way below other models. I have over 50 years engine building experience. No attention to detail, assuming a cam lobe can be used for multiple engines and ignoring the differences among engine types will cause this problem. Sloppy. A cam with nearly the same specs from another manufacturer does not have this problem. Beware COMP Cams quality control, it failed on my cam; actually that's two cams because I unnecessarily rebuilt my engine multiple times trying to find where the oil was getting into the intake. I've been a CompCams customer for over 3 years. No more. ...read more
