No offence man but your prices are a little high. You can get cam gears from the web store for half of that.

Did you mis type on the gasket price? USD 400.00!!! You can buy SCE copper gasket for USD $58.00 retail. They also do an exhaust gasket. Did you really mean USD$40.00..

As for the Cam gears. If they are really USD $450.00 ea. That is USD $900.00 per set. IF they are $450.00 for the set. It is high but maybe not bad. They would need to be a 1/3 the wieght or less. That the ones from Rotational Dynamics. In order to make the rotational mass better to make the engine spin more freely. Otherwise they would not be worth extra. Too me. But only if $450.00 is a set price.

:oops: i am selling the first class 7075 titanium cams pulley at USD450 per set .

for the headgasket , i don't make a lot of profit , infact for both item i don't make a lot , the price is high because i am using first class material and labour charges for head gasket(laser cut) already cost me very high,unless i can get huge order or else i don't think i can get any lower price.

I am not saying they are not first class. I just am pointing out the gaskets are way out. SCE is a very good company. They have been making gaskets for racing applications for a long time. As I said they are a few dollars less. Price wise you might not want to do the gaskets.

As for your cam gears. I am sure the are nice. But on money difference there sould be advantage to using them. How strong of metal you use does not come in to play. We are not braking this part or the aluminum one. There is not alot of force on that area. So the advantage needs to be in mass. Alot lighter will help.

Otherwise on these products it does not pay to get them. Unless it just is something you want. Performance & Money go hand in hand. No gains for the extra money. Does not make a good product.

I am not jumping all over you for tring to get some products made. Just pointing out you need to be compete with price or with performance.

yeah , i agree with you , icanactually use aluminium instead of titanium , the price will be much lower , but the thing is i can get better market here in malaysia when i told them it's titanium pulley and we did weight both aluminium and titanium , the weight is about 1:1.5 each , thas't the reason why i concernrate on titanium and not aluminium.

no doubt the gasket price is way too high , as i told u they charging me expensive because my limited quantity order, i hope ican get better price in the future when i can get a local dealer here and i will inform you guys.


*thanks for your opinoin :D

On the Gasket. If it is hard to get that there. Why don't you import it from SCE. May still be cheaper than making them. I bet there are some exporters already that you could contact and get the gaskets over there. If not I may know an exporter. I can ask him if he ships there. He does wholesale only. So you need to have a shop. Just let me know if you want help.

Hey Psycho,

you've been told before that 7075 it is grade of ALUMINUM not titanium. False advertising isn't a good thing....imagine someone actually paying your price just to receive aluminum parts. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I thought 7075 was a titanium matrix?

7075 is a high strength aluminium alloy that indeed contains a trace of Titanium (0.20% max).
Calling that alloy Titanium is ehem, slight exageration IMHO.

sorry if i make mistake again , i do not know 7075 wasn't titanium , i been checking with local metal specialist and supplier , they all told me 7075 is titanium , so who to believe? i do not know , well , just forget bout that , that isn't very important to me , as long as what i having on my car is light enough and i got the differeces between my new adjustable 7075 cams pulley , i am happy enough.

7075 is not titanium...

For a NICER set of adjustable cam pullies, Magnesium would be superrior..

Titanium is a RICE word now... We waved some titanium or sprinkled titanium dust on it, so it's titanium aloy.

If you do a search on google for 7075 titanium, rice stuff comes up. If you do a search for 7075 aluminium, metalurgist (sp?), engineering firms, metal tech pages come up..

titanium alloy are available commercially in 3/2.5 alloy or the 6/4 higher grade version. titanium are very difficult to machine, so i'm not sure how are you gonna make an entire cam gear wheel out of the titanium alloy.

if you have any pics of the actual piece, we will all like to see it.
