SEMA 2012: Howards Cams Leads With Innovation And Quality
With over 65 years of race winning performance, Howards Racing Cams are fast becoming a force to be recognized. Founded by Howard Johansen as Howard’s Power & Racing Equipment in 1945 it has since become the go-to source for engine shops, backyard wrenchers and the like. We can see why, too. All cams are ground in-house and they also offer many more items like crankshafts, rods, pistons and even billet main caps! We had the opportunity to visit Howards Cams & Racing Components at this year’s SEMA 2012 show and were blown away.
We couldn’t help but notice their fine attention to detail, especially on the Howards line of roller lifters, cams and even their pistons along with billet main caps. Better yet, Howards is also introducing stud girdle plates for a wide variety of engine applications.
Howards Pro Max mechanical lifters are built to last. Featuring “full time” high pressure oiling to the roller bearing shafts, the continuous oiling offers higher rpm and high spring pressure capability. Each lifter features a steel alloy body, heat treated link bars and case hardened 8620 rollers.
For the billet steel mechanical roller camshafts available from Howards, they’re designed to handle the extreme and brutal conditions of racing. Made from premium billet steel, these ‘sticks are heat-treated and ground in-house to assure quality and long life.
In need of some new slugs? Howards Pro Max line of pistons are avaialble as well. These aluminum race pistons feature a 2618-T61 forging and strong X-beam design. They also feature radius valve reliefs, oversized valve pockets and CNC turned skirts. Of course, they’re made right here in the USA.
Not stopping there, Howards was also proud to feature their line of Extreme Billet Main Caps. These caps are precision CNC machined for straight or splayed applications with side notches to allow for easy removal during the build or tear-down process. Of course, Howards has lots of other parts and components to fully compliment your current or engine build. Make sure to visit the Howards Racing Cams webiste for the full scoop.
