i ran a regrind cam in my brute force and had some issues....noticed metal during oil changes and further inspection revealed the cam was flaking apart....swapped to a billet cam and never had an issue....and the issue as i understand it is the same with automotive cams.....


as for the second question yes you can run a regular cam but its more then mds you also lose vct.....you would also be swapping out the cam gear.....but im not even sure if anythings available to do this type of swap......this is what i was initially going to do but i was going to have a billet cam cut to my specs....
