Ok, I just took a look at Supercoupeperformance.com I bought the stage two cam from him. He says the cam has a lift of .500" on both valves. The card i got with the cam says it has a gross life of .460" I don't see .500" anywhere on the cam spec sheet. Where did my .040" of lift go that i payed for? Or am i reading the numbers wrong?

Look for the lobe lift number and multiply it by 1.73 for your valve lift. Some times the cam card does not have the correct rocker ratio listed. If after doing the math the lift isn't .500, then I would suggest giving Bill a call.
