Re: 4age cams

We have a set of 268's in our Avante with a series 3 head. Makes nice power mid range.

Go for a set of 272's and above for nice mid to high end power.

Head work makes a huge difference on the series 3 head as well. Do a full flow and cut the valve seats.

Re: 4age cams

Hey 160i, I'm planning on putting a set of 288 cams in my Twincam! I'm sure that it will make decent power on top, only thing with the higher duration cams is that the power will come in higher in the rev range.

@ Sam, I bought myself a small port head that is going to be flowed, ported & polished!  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/biggrin2

Re: 4age cams

Do a forum search about cam lift and you will find all the info you need. We have discussed this many times before.

Find out if the 276's are billet or cut/reground  cams....and try and find out the lift as well?

Re: 4age cams

cheapest way is ask an importer who has a 20v head that he wants to strip, the 20v exhaust cam will work on you 16v,giving you a bigger cam for almost no charge  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Re: 4age cams

check the lobes for lines on them ... if that is da case then 4get about using those cams as they are damaged ...
You will need to shim the head ...
is ur head modded (gas flowed, ported) coz if it aint you aint gonna get the best out the cams ...
272 gonna make the car iddle CRAP ... stock ECU can handlle or just barely ...
to setup you will need to get a set of verniers and have them adjust it on a dyno for best power results ...
try and get a SMT6 or SMT8 or unichip (piggy back) so help with fueling and timing as the stock ECU will not get the best you can out those cams ...
1.5k for 272 Billets is a EXCELLENT PRICE ...
any size billets these days will set you back 4K easy!!!

Re: 4age cams

I second 2cams on this 1..
Most important is the cam bearing which would make ur motor sound very noisy...
