The cam shaft is a little more noticeable than the factory 2 barrel 350 cam, since thats what it had in there to begin with. Id say somewhere in the realm of 268/268 duration and probably no more than 0.450 lift and thats probably an overestimate at

I'm leaning towords a 0w-30'or 0w-40 or 5w-40 oil. I see amsoil makes 0w-30 in thier signature series line and I have read that it's a great oil, possibly even amsoils best oil. I see redline makes a 0w-30 and a 0w-40 and a 5w-40. I don't know much a

I would suggest a high quality HEAVY DUTY engine oil with API service CJ-4/SN in 10W-30, 15W-40 or or synthetic 5W-40. Brands vary, but try MOBIL DELVAC, SHELL ROTELLA or SUPERTECH (Warren). All these CJ-4/SN HEAVY DUTY engine oils help the Big Rig

Many trucks have this-as stated. My 2011 w/the 5.3 makes the noise as well. The discussion on other boards is most dealers don't wish to do anything about it. In addition, most run normally when they warm up-at least for now.

Hey welcome to BITOG! First forget the Lucas Oil thickener. I'd suggest Quaker State Defy 5W-30 for year round use. I don't know if your engine actually needs higher AW additive levels like ZDDP but Defy has it. Do you have an oil pressure gauge?

What are the spec's on the cam? Ultimately that's going to determine whether you need additional ZDDP or not. For reference, we broke-in and ran for a number of years a Lunatti voodoo in my buddy's dad's SBC, which is about the wildest series of read

Might be worth testing charging voltage. Try before starting and after running for a bit. If it's high it could cause cell failure, AGM's don't like being cooked, there's not much to cook away.
