HD 585 cam opinion
« on: February 10, 2019, 02:16:00 PM »

Thinking of swapping the cam's from what came installed to HD 585.  Would change springs, rocker arms and also since cam plate is off, the SE high flow oil pump and billet cam support plate.  If any one has done this, what kind of change in seat of the pants performance can be expected?   :nixweiss:

I upgraded to a 117” kit from my CVO in my 2015 RGU and love it.

I went with T-Man's 585 which comes with his 113 kit and couldnt be happier. Tons of low end torque.  :2vrolijk_21:

It is a mild cam that is low end torque oriented. It will need 10:1 to provide the punch that the stock cam does however but will open up the 4k up range assuming the motor health is fine and the pipe cooperates. It will take a retune, from a flash tuner not the fuel adders.

Change rocker arms to what?  If to roller rocker arms, be aware you will need to clearance your rocker box lids...  Good Luck!

I ran the SE 585 in a non CVO 110 and really liked the results. Good low end torque. I did run about 10.8:1 compression with worked heads.
Good Luck

10.8 without a perfect tune is too high. Even then it would require timing pulled and negate power and torque gains and run hot. 1 would not push that 36 close cam past about 10.4 with a tight squish

I have had it in for the past 34k miles with stock compression and stock pistons.  Seems to kick in about 3k RPMs..Dyno numbers were 100/116 with a PC5 and MGS pipe....With a 58mm TB snd 5.3 injectors and Fullsacs dx pipe and 1.75 power cores dyno numbers were 110/114... I would use the SE 585 cams with headwork (10.1- 10.4) and a good pipe and tune and let her rip..

Agreed but use a flash tuner not a pc5 which neuters the delphi
