    the AEMs are known to slip

    i would suggest a different cam gear (with at least 4 bolts)

    ReallY! that sucks to know! Is there any thing to do to prevent slippage. locktight? And whats makes them slip? are they chealy made or is it high torque? I don't think I will be putting more the 120 foot pounds out so am I safe?
