No experience but it's nice to know something exists. I noticed they have cams for the 117, 119, 120 and 137 as well. For those V engines they were all listed as Road application so I'm not sure if they are a stock replacement or a little more performance.

The regrinds are going to be more involved to get the geometry correct...ie, shims/lash caps..they do have springs listed which is Good.
New cams are more plug and play.

His 117 grind is OK, but still pretty mild!

Some of those M103 grinds are pretty wild..it would be fun to play with some of those

I know you have some experience in this area. There isn't a lot of room in there to play with, is there? Too much lift = piston hit/sensitivity to chain stretch (and with more turning resistance/stronger springs, this will happen sooner), and so on...

I've taken my solid lifter cams Pretty far on a 10-1 engine.

My 'test' bed is an engine w/ around 200K and it spends the bulk of it's time being run on the track or flogged mercilessly on the street turning and making good power to 67/6800 rpm in the process.

There are ways to keep alignment/timing etc, in spec.. Although I would like to make some adjustable cam gears so I could play with timing even more.
