Porsche Crest Current Status of 914/4 lifters.

Good Morning,

I am about to get off my rear and order the stuff to re-assemble my bottom end from Pelican.

I know that several months ago there were multiple / cam and lifter problems with replacement parts. I only want to do this once, so what is the status of Web Cam cam / lifter parts?

Do I need the ceramic lifters to be safe and if so, who makes them and does Pelican carry them?

Has Web Cam helped with warranty of these bad cams and lifters?

I ended up biting the bullet and ordered the ceramic lifters from LN Engineering.

$429 a set....ouch, but they can be used over and over again if I swap out my cam later on.

Yeah OUCH. That is worse than the 200.00 oil pump.

I ended up ordering a Web Cam stock grind cam and the sales person assured me that the webcam lifters were the right thing to do?

I'm worried about it. I guess I just need to decide if I am 429.00 worried about it.

Funny all the post about the lifter from a few months back just ended as near as I can tell, no real resolution in them.........
