Closed Cam Tunnel ??s

I was hoping that Mr Kaase or one of his talented staff could shed some light on this. Many of us read about the 2003 EMC coverage and I for one have been curious about it ever since.

There was a 2009/2010 thread that discussed it, but i was hoping to hear Jons comments on it. Maybe a little detail on how its done? Maybe a picture or two...lol


Thank you
Jason

... we are actually doing this to a couple of Canted Valve Pontiac's, you "basically" place a tube between the roller cam bearings, one at a time ... (brg,tube,brg,tube etc.) they need to be sealed and drain-back areas cut/machined in the top of the tubes, and obviously the lifter bores ...

... this mod is worth HP, and if done correctly, if you crap a roller lifter it stays in the tube ... it also absorbes some valvetrain harmonics too, but you really need to be turning the engine to see most of that part ... windage is controlled also, but front/rear drain back passages need to be made ...

... i'll throw up some pics when we get one finished ...
