I called Dart and they had problems at the foundry and they wont be ready for some time. Has anyone gotten any or had troubles getting them?

Race, it's an SHP version. I called them and they said they were having problems casting the blocks because they were making running changes to the original SHP core box to allow the smaller bore of the 305.

Been there and it sucks.
Takes out lots of parts.Sounds like time to upgrade to a better quality P55 cam core.That and take a look at the valve spring package you are running if it is a cast cam core
