-Hard to say about the cam....HAPI wasn't famous for high quality, so
stock would not surprise me. I compared about 25 cams to find the one
with the highest lift and shortest duration when I built mine, a
standard 1:1.1....a real stump puller cam where the power is way down
low on the RPM scale.
> 4. What is the max EGT figure?
-Depends on where the probe is, but GPASC says do not exceed 1400F,
1050F-1200F at cruise, which I think is way conservative. My alarm is
set to 1375F

reliability for the 1835 HAPI?
If you need heads, don't waste your money on anything but Revmasters.
