Cylinder 1 and 2 look fairly well worn (you should be able to feel it with your fingernail) I would recommend regular oil tests if you don't replace the cam.

hey there bud thats only ONE of your cams, and it don't look that bad to me. Unfortunately thats the one not known for being problematic. You want pictures of the other cam, and you don't want it to look like this: Elise intake camshaft

Thanks, all. I think they only sent that set because they're the most worn of them. They said they can't find feel anything with their finger nail. He engine has 65k miles on it so I think this is a good set of Cams. I mainly use the car for autocross these days so I figured it was worth a check.
