    This cam/lifter situation is predominantly in the Eagle 5.7 The 6.1s are not a problem.

    If I could find some of these lifters in stock I will swap them out before the possibility of a cam job. I do realize its a small percentage but I have the time and know how.

    Ouch! That's painful to look at.

    Maybe half a year or longer ago, buddy of mine has a 2014 RAM 4500 with the 6.4, several lifters went bad, and I do believe it ate the cam (as you might figure it would.) It took the shop quite a while to source the lifters to repair it, too.

    holy ****, that's some wear alright. That's why I swap lifters every 3000 miles when I change the oil.

    ...I do not change my oil every 3k, also, I do not change my lifters each oil change. I did swap lifters at about 150k when I put new heads on. The OEM lifters all looked good still and I sold them to someone here really cheap. Hope the new ones make it 150K themselves. Car has 185 on the clock now.

    That actually looks like the lifter spun 90 degrees and was running sideways on the lobe. Wow

    Yeah I thought it was the supercharger on stock pistons that was causing all my knock?!?! Stroked & forged 426 with hellcat lifters & comp cam going in now. Funny though that nothing ever showed on the oil analysis & I was changing the oil every 3000-3500 miles.

    Oil analysis would never show top ring lands departing the pistons.

    Also, there is not a specific "Hellcat" lifter. The lifter iteration being used in current production of all Hemi's, is backwards compatible to the first 5.7 truck engine.

    Agreed; appears the yoke broke.

    No but I would have hoped it would show the cam being eaten alive. That's what I was referring to with the analysis.

    Ah - not a top ring failure but a camshaft / lifter / yoke failure?
