Re: Kinda O/T - Whats a lot of miles on a 454 Chevy?

What? the 454 Boat Anchor is a notorious Camshaft eater. "Normally, the cams began to be affected by wear ~60,000 miles, depending on maintenance. A built 454 with higher revs and valve springs could expect ~30,000 out of a cam....maybe less. Thats why a company developed an oiling system that is pressurized and squirts oil DIRECTLY onto every lobe of the cam....they actually last that way....
