It was supposed to be ok but it lunched the valve guides on the intake. But that was 500 thou lift in a stock head. Didn't really do any damage other than that.

Just a thought, before you order a cam make sure wether you have the hybrid motor or not.

That's good for you, you'll have a bigger selection to choose from, make sure it's auto friendly unless you put a stallie in the auto.

a) everyone likes complaining about how expensive they are
b) not sure why, but although the dev5 is a proven performer also seems to have a bad name for chain rattle and causing havoc with rocker gear...in saying that the only dev5 equipped car I have actually seen didn't have any rattle...
