This is a very intriguing grind. I started down the rabbit hole looking up details on some of the Cam Motion grinds and found myself overwhelmed with intake and exhaust flow theory that I can't say I quite understood, not that I'm an expert or anything. It seems to be a specific grind for a specific purpose. I will certainly give them a solid look and discuss my needs when the time comes. They seem very well regarded.
If memory serves me...and it may not. My cam is as follows: Duration 228/232 Lift .582/591 LSA 112 Other bits include. LS6 intake Patriot Stage 2 heads, Mac Mid lengths with high flow cats Magnaflow cat back Mcleod twin disk cluth So... and dang you.. wink I noticed my power steering does the same thing. I just replaced the rack with one from Rack Doctors. You have any part numbers on your cooler setup?

Quick follow up: Ran my first auto-x event since the steering changes. Max temp I saw over four runs was 165 F (as measured in the reservoir between runs). Ambient temp was unseasonably hot for September too, about 88 F. Win. One less thing to worry about.
