Looking at this on my phone, your username looked like it said Mrob which would have garnered many responses rather quickly.

As for the trip, as long as everything checks out when you inspect it, you should be fine for only 300 miles. How recently was the cam installed and was it tuned?

I had a bigger cam than that, plus a blower and did many long road trips in my Gen1. If it's running well and tuned you should be good to go.

A 300 mile trip is impossible in a Viper. 10 miles max, maybe 11 on a good day.

You'll be fine.

Cam has little or nothing to do with it.

Don't forget to vote for Bernie when you fill up.

In that case he best not drive it at all! It is a well-known fact that non-ABS/non-Airbag equipped cars have killed more people than cancer, heart disease, AIDS, cigarettes, hunger, pollution, every war, global warming and old age combined since the beginning of time. And the children, lest us not forget the children.
