John started his cam career at Mr Elgin's shop. That should tell you something right there. Dema Elgin is extremely well known in the performance world of most motor sports. Do some research on him for yourself - you'll be impressed. John left Dema years ago to open his own shop.

Your mechanic might be on to something with a custom grind, but if its mostly stock, there is not much need for custom. If you are looking for some specific performance gain, then that's a different story and a custom grind might be in order.

Do not buy custom grinds from cam shops - buy them from motor builders like Performance Developments or JB Racing or Jerry Woods for example. These guys design, grind (or have ground) cams, then test. They know motors and the cams that go in them. They know the results first hand. Again, if you're going to keep your motor mostly stock, its probably a good idea to get a 964 or GTII cam grind - ALWAYS buy cams ground from billet, not reground and buying these from a cam shop is ok. My advice is based on personal experience.

Talk to the builders for solid advice, then come up with a plan with your mechanic.

Good luck.
