Can't see why anyone would buy a new one when the Regrinds are around the $150.00 mark!

I had a reground Wade cam (1004 / 110) at it was great, then i went to somthing a bit more potent (modified 1521a) so i HAD to get a new billet... it was either that ot have my rockers machined so they'd sit lower...

If the cam you are getting isn't too wild, then a regrind is definately the way to go, but it reaches a point where you need to get a new billet.

I was of the impression a billet cam didn't require shims, maintaining the standard cam "circumference", this being the main benefit???

Can we clear up something. Standard EA - EL engines run shims. Billet cams also need shims but not extra shims or thicker shims as is the case for a reground cam. The billet cams however still need to run the standard shims.
