Anyone running the Andrews 57H

I have heard nothing in awhile about this cam it was the talk of the town. I have a Limited ready for a cam and was eyeing the 57H. Did anyone ever post any results?

acbacb wants to know where he is and how he got here
Saw a dyno sheet on another forum (HTT) of the 57 in a 110. Nice numbers for a straight up bolt in cam. They are on backorder until June per Gary Wallace of Andrews Products Tech Support via an email inquiry.

I will do my build this coming winter so I should get a hold of one by then. I think I'm just going do a true bolt-in cam (57H), stay at 103 & no headwork. I'm just looking for a little more oomph and a lot less heat. This will save lots o' dollars and I will be happy with the results.

I will wait to see some feedback before doing anything , but this looks like it would hit hard out of the hole and pull to mid 5k range . We will see.

I have a '94 evo that I will be putting the 57 cam into very soon. I don't have any experience with the twin cams and their clearances for valves, springs and valve stem seals, but for the evo, I was informed that the valve guides needed to be moved down so the seals would not be smashed by the spring collars. Also, the Andrews cam spec sheets say to use larger springs (theirs, of course) and high lift collars. I'm wondering if the 57 for the tc has the same specs as for the evo. I know I'm talking two different engines here, but just some thoughts to throw out.

BTW, the mechanic that always helps me says that the 57, in his opinion, is the best cam for the heavy bikes. He has been trying to talk me into this cam for two years, and we finally located one on the shelf at Andrews. They don't make them anymore for the evos, the 59 has replaced the 57.

Hope the 57's work good in your limited.

The Andrews 57 just came out.
Didn't know they made them for an evo engine.

Gary from Andrews also recommended the 57h for my '08 96" DWG. Now, I know that I'm quite a bit lighter than the baggers...I'm a little confused....the same cam for a 96" Dyna AND the heavier 103" baggers? Your thoughts, please..

The EV57 was a cam for EVO engines, typically used for those bored to 88ci+. It was a hi-lift cam and required springs and collars to be upgraded.

The 57H is a new cam set for Twinkies, 96,103 and 110. It has the same .560 lift which works with stock springs in the TC where anything over .510 was considered "hi-lift" for an EVO.

It looks like if you're keeping stock cr, the 48H will probably give better low end torque (out of the gate). 57H comes on a little later than the 48H but the overall specs are very similar. These cams both work in 2007-current Dynas. These are both chain drive cams.

Be wary of someone selling one cam as "the best for XXX engine". The key is to match the cam to the rest of the build. Compression ratio is probably the most important thing to match correctly as well as considering your riding style.

If you talk to Bob Woods or my HD dealer they are gonna tell you go to with the Woods 555 cam.

I'd be curious to see a dyno sheet on the 57 would look like. Looks like it's 2* earlier than my TW-555 cams and has .005" more lift. I'd bet a handful of pocket lint that two identical bikes with TW-555 and TW57 cams would be impossible to tell apart.

That being said I'll have to recommend the Woods TW-555 cam cause that's what I have and I need to justify the extra money I spent on it. (FTR I'm pleased as punch with it...)
