VAC Mini Cam Tech Tips:
-VAC always recommends High Performance Valve Springs on any aggressive cams or cars that see track use camshaft upgrades. This ensures our customers always get the best performance and reliability from their engine by helping prevent pistons-to-valve contact in the event of an over-rev or mis-shift. This is typically not necessary for street only Minis.
-Please have a machinist inspect your rocker arms for wear before reuse. Rocker arms with wear should be replaced before install of a new cam!
