Default opinions on billet cams

Is it true that the billet colt cams have solve premature wear issues in the PD?
I vaguely remember watching a dark side video where he said they changed the profile on their cam to eliminate wear.was wondering if that's been incorporated into the colt design

The stock cams are iron so they end up flattening and chewing thru the lifters. A friend and I just replaced his cam and buckets. Oil sample showed lots of iron in it. Low and behold all the lobs but 2 were sharp and 1 bucket was almost completely chewed thru. Not a bad job though. Can’t beat the kit from dark side either.

The cam was a hair out of spec so we just had to knock it back in a tad.

Oh I’m sorry I didn’t know they made a performance cam also. We only put the stock size cam back in.

Assuming this is going in a PD?
Seeing the vehicle in your signature is a bit confusing.

They can if the wrong oil is used, it's just less of an issue on the BHW than the BEW did.
