    So I was looking at some for sale threads over on corral and stumbled upon some cams for sale. They are a custom grind, but the seller says they're similar to the 270ah cams. I just want to know if I will have any issues with ptv clearance if I buy them.

    Here are the specs:

    What do you guys think?

    If they are in fact similar to comp 270's, then you cutting it close for ptv clearance. But they are custom ground and may factor a low lift dwell IVO to aid in clearance. If you can pick them up on the cheap, I say purchase. Build up a good flat top short block with valve reliefs and swap it out.

    Yeah I figured since they are a custom grind they might be a bit different. Lol I wish I could afford a shortblock right now, I'd be all over a teksid shortblock with flat tops, but money ain't there yet. I'll ask the seller and see if I can get some more info, but it's safe to say that off the shelf 270ah cams are bit too risky right?
