The Leading Edge of Valve Train Technology
Comp Cams Xtreme Energy series can be used in any street or street/strip application where both throttle response and top-end horsepower is desired. These camshafts are designed to take advantage of the latest improvements in valve train components and the newest developments in camshaft design. Their aggressive lobe design produces better throttle response and top end horsepower than other cams with the same duration @ .050'' lift, while delivering increased engine vacuum. We do not recommend the use of stock valve train components with these camshafts due to the aggressive lobe designs.

With the retrofit hydraulic roller cam from Comp Cam's my question is what is the proper distributor gear that's required to with these camshafts? A melanized gear?or a bronze gear for normal street rods and hot rods occasionally strip times. Best gear???
