I e-mailed you about three weeks ago about having a possible cam failure. I just confirmed that I did have a slave sprocket on the right hand side exhaust cam fail. Initial estimates are $4 to $5 Thousand and that is not taking into consideration other engine damage. I called NHSTA and also FOMOCO. FOMOCO says there is nothing they can do for me.
