Engine light code shows compression loss on cylinder #6. Car has been in the shop for 3 weeks waiting on a new cam and lifters. If part is not here by monday thay are putting in a new engine. Only have 42,000 miles with very minor mods: Tune, air intake. Any one else having cam issues?

Not many lifter issues? I would say there seems to be an overwhelming amount of problems. There is a TSB about the issue. Seems to be a common problem.

Seems to be a common problem on the forum, I hardly think that makes it a common problem on all G8 GTs.

Never seen another G8 in our shop for cam/lifters. But I have seen a half dozen Votec Max trucks (also L76) wipe lobes out on the camshaft.
