    Breakthrough for anyone with bad exhaust cams

    Good news. We here at Northstar Performance have struck a deal with a camshaft regrinding company to cost-effectively re-grind cams for the Northstar. New ones (when I priced them) are in the range of $500 per shaft.

    We will very soon be offering remanufactured camshafts at around half price or less. Only good ones (barely worn) will be sent away for regrinding. This will restore them to 100% factory specs. The lifters will easily compensate for the small amount of material removed.

    We'll be shipping out about 50-100 cams at a time to bring the cost as low as possible.

    Availability will be soon; probably in a month or so.

    In due time we might be purchasing used cams from people, so don't throw out what you have.

    Hey Taylor don't have them installed yet and don't currently have the time. I was doing a bit of framing in the back of the shop; heard the phone ring but I was on some scaffolding at the time with a claw hammer. Over five grand worth of new roll-up doors are due for installation on Friday- I just have to do a bit of prep work.

    During that week you mentioned we can get your TCC issue resolved. I'll try to call you tomorrow sometime to set it up.
