As BC Gerolamy supplied the cams much discussion was had over what the objectives were and the choice was reduced to TW-6G or TW-8G. Although the higher torque output of the TW-6G was desireable it is known as a noisy cam so the TW-8G was picked in the hope of hitting 120 HP and 120 Ft-lbs of torque.

The high lift of the cam also required that the rocker boxes were also sent to BC Gerolamy in California for CNC machining to allow clearance.
