    catcams 275/268 ,suitable hydraulic lifters?

    Hello
    I recently bought camshaft for my e30 with m50b25 non vanos with part number 1301109.
    The cam is made from billet steel can I install this cam with stock hydrolic followers..
    .I'm afraid that steel camshaft will damage hydrolic follower and cause premature wear to the camshaft.
    I have heard that steel camshaft should be used with dlc coated lifters to prevent premature wear.
    they recommend use of oem hydraulic follow any previous experience with catcams made of billet steel ?
    thank you

    no sorry. maybe check out r3v if you have not already. there is a sub forum dedicated to 24v swaps.
