Guys i have an xf 4.1 efi engine with a modified cam and head. I am getting wear on the intake lifter on no1 all the time what would be causing this. The head, the rocker, the lifter bore and obviously it is affecting the cam lobe as well.? :?:

If the head is ported,polished maybe even shaved, do you have to work out what sort of cam has to go in or do you put what ever in.?
