I was just wondering if anyone out there thinks the quality of there cams and lifters are junk. I dont have an opinion yet. Just hoping some of you could fill me in.

I am an Elgin dealer, for 12 years now, don't buy a tremendous amount of stuff from them, but, I would say their quality is as good as any. Many other companys sell the same things, just in different boxes and labeling. Their balljoints and suspension parts as good as anything out there. Prices are right too.
Have had a few cams go flat prematurly, but not just Elgin, It is all in how they were broke in.

I use the Elgin E1090P camshaft and solid lifters and have never had any problems breaking in or wearing out. Use the right oil, change it regularly and you won't have any problems. Use the recommend valve spring pressure.

The worst set of rocker arms I have ever used were the roller tip rocker arms from Elgin.I had never broken a stock type long slot rocker arm,so I tried a set of the roller tips and pushed two pushrods through the rockers the very first night.They went in the garbage the next day.
