I'm building a 408C stroker street motor and I plan to install a hydraulic roller cam. Most of the cams I've priced for a Cleveland are cast material that are heat treated. Some of my older racing/engine buddies tell me to buy a cam made from 8620 alloy steel billet. They tell me the cast varieties sometimes go bad when using rollers. I know there is a cost difference, so the billet should be better, but is it worth the extra cash? The engine I'm building will not see many miles or will it be raced every weekend, if at all. I do want it to be as trouble free as it can be. Any comments out there? I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find a good answer. Thanks.
