Angry McNews & Ford Stage II Cams

I ordered Ford Racing Stage II cam's from McNews and I just got them in. I open the box to see there is no Ford logo on the cam's. This troubled me b/c now I'm thinking that I just paied $345 for knock off cam's. I measured them and the base circle's and Lift measurments are off by up to .003". I know thats not much but has anyone eles measured your cam's when you got them (like your saposed to) and is the variation that much with other Mfg's? And whats the deal with no Ford logo? All these say is "SPORTCAM".

Whats the deal man?

^^ what he said. If it doesn't then you might have an older version which doesn't have the p/n on it.

I'd call McNews if you had any concerns. I'm sure Ray would hook you up.

Being off by .003" isn't saying much unless you're using high-precision measuring equipement that only engineers and machinists would have in their toolkit. A low-cost dial indicator or caliper could easily be off by .003" or more from the factory, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
