I'm following this out of sheer curiosity... and in case the V10 in my Excursion outlives the truck itself.

That's pretty cool, and it seems like a real home-build style project!

What are you going to do for cam blanks?

Weld one together?

Initially we wanted to use 2V cores and get those custom grounded (4 of them) for our application, but the lobe separation is different on the 4-valve cams, so that won't work.

At this point, we will likely need custom cores made. There's a company local to us that does custom cores and can fab cams to our specs so we will try that first. We'll probably also call up COMP cams to see if they can do anything for us.

Last resort would be welding a bunch of 4-valve cams together but hopefully it doesn't get to that.

Fourth video is live!

In this video, we port & polish the heads, and install bronze valve guides. Heads are going off to the shop this week!
