The Thumpr™ camshafts are a new series of retro-fit hydraulic roller camshafts designed for use in 1955-1998 262-400 cubic inch Small Block Chevrolet engines that were originally equipped with flat tappet camshafts. The reason that the new Thumpr™ Camshafts have such an aggressive exhaust note is that the lobe profiles and grind characteristics chosen by the COMP Cams® engineers produce a combination of early exhaust valve opening, long exhaust duration, and a generous amount of intake and exhaust overlap to maximize the rough-idling characteristics of the cams without negatively impacting the power output or streetability of the engine.

Thumpr™ Camshafts are available in three different grind profiles, each one of which will produce a rough, racy exhaust note and impressive amounts of horsepower and torque at a different rpm range. Their cutting-edge hydraulic roller design means that they will deliver a substantial power increase over an identical hydraulic flat tappet grind without sacrificing reliability or ease of maintenance.

PROFORM has engineered the first significant small-block Chevy valve cover innovation in years! Now you can adjust your valves with the engine running and keep the oil inside doing its job. The diagonal angle of the top section ensures no oil mess and the gaskets provide a leak tight seal. The angle of the removable top will allow for larger roller rockers or stud girdles, and the covers are fitted with oversize bolt heads for easy removal. These unique PROFORM valve covers also are equipped with a removable OEM style baffle and grommets.
PROFORM’s Patent Pending die-cast covers are available in chrome, black crinkle and polished finishes, and sport the Chevrolet and Bow-Tie logos. The covers come with the required Allen wrench, and will fit all 1958 to 1986 small-block engines.
