Well when I am not breaking parts it is great, gave me 9000 miles of smiles without a beat other then the TCFI, but man it is hurting me right now.SILVER BULLET said:You gotta love the 6HG !!!!!
YES ,6HG cam has very fast ramps and is hard on the valve train. They make good power,but you have to pay the price ! Have seen several of them break the rocker arm supports.SEDELUXE05 said:silverbullet is this a common problem with thw 6hg. im getting ready to install one in my 05 deluxe.
laf are you still going to use the 6hg or go to something else?
So in my other thread when I asked what may have happened first, the lifter or the push rod, as I had no idea at that time I was facing this in the top end, this could have started the push rod/lifter failure?SILVER BULLET said:YES ,6HG cam has very fast ramps and is hard on the valve train.
