Default 280 / 272 Cat Cams unboxing and review! pics inside

As some of you may know, I had decided a few weeks ago to check out this new Cat Cams craze (where I come from anyway) and order a set of their "Sport" cams 280/ 272 duration -12.50/12.25 lift. Part# 1301804. So I ordered the part and 5 weeks later this came to my door .

With my wife rolling her eyes at me I opened the box and found a Cat inside

Underneath the cat cams sticker( which I'm sure is worth 20 ponies on it's own) were two cylindrical cartons. Screenshot_2016-09-17-21-02-25.png
I took out the exhaust cam, and it was wrapped in bubble wrap and oiled for rust protection I guess

The lobes look really fat to me,but then again I'm used to seeing the stock cams on my engine.

sweet! I got the 288/280 cams a few weeks ago. I got my top end rebuilt and decided to upgrade with cat cams paired with brand new DLC schrick rockers. Should be ready by next week

More or less compared to the price of Schrick cams?

Less! Which would contribute to the bang per buck factor if I arrive at similar results. I got them at such a good price that I just couldn't pass.
