So it seems that 240/228, 240/244, and close enough to 228/228, could all be correct depending on what lift marker is used for what camshaft :thumbsup:

I hate camshaft specs :bawling:

I went to heat range 7, single prong, and problem solved for my car. Cheap or not, if they arent the correct heat range, they will be an issue. I had the issue going from 14 to 16psi in a hot climate.
