Standard thickness cam plate (0.121") for use with regular timing chain sets or
the thinner 0.111" cam plate for use with our trick timing chain for the ultimate setup.
The Nitemare Performance laser-cut extra-oiling cam plates are upgraded versions of the plate design used by Pontiac. Our unique design features the correct, angled oil transfer slot, plus a full 360-degree, circumferential oil groove cut into the camshaft side of the plate that provides superior lubrication to reduce friction and wear. This part is a must for all performance applications.
The Pro Series camshaft plate features the same precise laser-cut design, but from stronger 4142 steel, hardened to 28-32 on the Rockwell scale, which makes it a must for high-performance street or racing engines running a nitrided, solid flat-tappet camshaft or a billet roller cam.
Nitemare Performance Camshaft Plates will work with any cam and timing chain setup, but we recommend using them with our trick timing chain setup for the ultimate timing chain camshaft setup.This ultimate setup, in almost all applications requires the use of our thinner cam plate machined to 0.111" thickness to maintain the correct cam 'end play'.
