Q & A

What's in the Box

Isky’s Max-1 is by far the best camshaft we have found for the vast majority of all flathead V8-powered street rods. It offers a great hot rod sound without sacrificing street manners, and provides good low-speed power with both stock and multi-carb intake manifolds.

This proprietary break-in lube formula includes the optimum amount of critical additives ZDDP (Zinc & Phosphorus), Molybdenum, detergents and high grade base oil.

The multi-viscosity, mineral-based COMP Cams Engine Break-In Oil Additive is fully-formulated and requires no additives or supplements. In addition, the oil is fully compatible with gasoline, methanol and high octane racing fuels.
