    Its generally the lifter that bites it and that takes out the cam

    If you're just fixing the car to sell it, don't bother. If you gonna keep it, why not, i would even update to a performance camshaft for more power.

    So finally got the motor pulled and low and behold it was the cylinder 5 intake lifter went bad and flattened the cam sadly. So I bought a reman mopar motor off craigslist, brand new, for a 2010 300c. Everything is going together well except the mds solenoids. The plugs aren't the same. Anyone know if there is a conversion harness or new clips I can use??? What do I do?

    could always delete MDS, not a big advocate of that generally, but it may be the easiest/most supported solution to that problem. Not sure if there is a harness or anything somewhere.

    I've thought about going that route but it might be more expensive right now. I'm just trying to get it back on the road.

    Can you just swap the solenoids from the original engine?

    Spray some lube on them, I used two paint can openers and lightly wedged one side at a time wiggling them and twisting them gently. Might not work for you but it did for me.

    Waiting for the follow up........

    In the meantime, I was told by Dodge mechanic that the camshafts in the HEMI's are notoriously SOFT compound. The wrong oil can cause a sticky lifter and it rounds the cam lobes almost instantly.

    Sucks.

    He also mentioned that's why the replacement OEM camshaft is around $60 brand new... but the lifter sets, for each side, is about $500 EACH! And since you HAVE to replace the lifters with the cam, the low priced cam is the weak link here.

    With labor, that equates to roughly $1700-$1800 dealership job for cam/lifter swap. :( Hence, why I was eager to say GoodBye to the '07 Charger I started with.

    Well crap! I my 09 RT started this today, under load it hesitated and check engine light started flashing and threw the p0305 code. Idle is fine it only held back when I was WOT then started shaking the car, dropped my speed and the shaking stopped but the light stayed on. I was hoping it would be a simple fix like a coil pack now I am not to happy

    Start with swapping the coil pack and checking spark plugs. Then move onto pulling valve covers and visual inspection while turning over by hand. Then leak down/compresson test.

    So Im guessing worst case scenario seeing how if the spring fails it causes wear on the cam if I have read correctly. Might as well go with a better cam right? Spartan Eagle plus would be a drop in and improvement over stock right?

    I’ll let someone else chime in if spring failure would lead to a cam lobe being flattened but I don’t think so myself, just doesn’t seem like it would. A spring failure would most likely still allow the lifter and cam to rotate in my mind. Cam damage is from lifter failure.

    If it literally is just spring failure would that be something I could do myself or is it like everything else on this car that requires special tools?
