Ok, I have a spare head that I am starting to play with(porting). I just would rather only have to buy one head gasket than two if I can avoid it(assuming that I can't live with the profile).
Thanks a lot,
Stu.

You can change the cam without pulling the head off, on basically all of these cars.

Hi suprf1y, I am building a 1.3 16v SOHC with over 12:1 compression 4 bike throttle bodies, race ecu, fully ported and polished head and a bottom end that should push past to 9500rpm. I wanted two cams, one for hill climb and another for the track. the hill climb needs a little mid range but the track cam should be all about the top end. What do you recommend? Thanks for the help

So i have a 95 metro lsi and i want a cam..obviously... so i was wondering if anything else is needed when you put it in. Do you have to set anything different in the car itself or can you just put it in and go?

I'm assuming it's a 3 cylinder?

Just put it in, and go.
No mods required.

Probably this one

340" lift, 192int/198exh duration
Thats a 8 degree gain on the intake, a 14 degree gain on the exh. and an extra .060"(!!) lift.

Unless you're really revving it, then this one

206 degrees duration at .050" on the intake, with .370" lift
210 degrees duration at ,050" on the exhaust with .370" lift.

Probably the second one.
You must be at the rev limiter at 6500

What would be the wildest cam profile you could churn out for a Suzuki Baleno with a G16B distributorless type ignition?

Drivability is not an issue, want a cam for the track & dragstrip.

From the first post

Quote:
I have developed a new cam for the G13/G16 16V SOHC.

206 degrees duration at .050" on the intake, with .370" lift
210 degrees duration at ,050" on the exhaust with .370" lift.


I can develop something more aggressive, but there's just not enough interest in that application.

I don't paying up a bit more for a custom profile. I am currently running a Crower 272 deg billet (cam kicks in around 2500 and goes all the way upto 7000 rpm, after which the OE intake manifold design kind of ruins revving it any further). I don't have any other specs of the cam as I lost the data sheet. I was looking at ~300 deg duration for race use only. Would that be possible?

Car is running on high compression (11:1), standalone ECU, intake and exhaust mods.

Also, what would be an ideal duration for a turbo setup on the G16B running a Garrett T25/T28 at around 1bar?

I might have another friend who would be interested in the turbo cam.

Hey,

few questions relating to the recommended cams for my engine (mk1 G13B).

It's not a daily driver but will be used occasionally for long several thousand km journeys through Europe. Highway rpm's in 5th gear are about 2700-3200rpm where where I wouldn't like get a huge rise in fuel consumption.

Current mods are:
GSXR ITB
Megasquirt controlling fuel and ignition.
Exhaust

What I would like to have are:
Lumpier idle
More power in mid and high rpm section (for overtaking that is ;))
Able to drive in heavy traffic (yeah, I know, that ITB doesn't help a bit there)

Now the questions:
1. Are 340/210 cams OK for this use as I've seen those for sale few times and I'm kinda interested in them?
2. Are adjustable cam gears necessary or only recommended? I've read many times that cams can be just 'slapped in and go' which made me a bit suspicious.
3. Can mk2 and later cams used in mk1 engine?
4. Any other things that I'd need to consider?

And yes, my intention is to visit dyno asap after installing the cams to get the maps corrected. I'll also leave adjusting the cam gears to a pro if adjusting is necessary.

Hi Atchi :)

yeah, but I thought that the rev range would have indicated that. Or suggest that I'm speeding all the time :D

So yes, I run on 10" tires with 3.52FD which might make a difference :)

Mike.

I need to line bore the camshaft bearings in the head so I think its time to think of new cams..

what grind would you suggest

MK II G13b
Vitara pistons
lightly ported head
Eaton M45 Supercharger running 1 bar of boost
Megasquirt and EDIS

its on a Gti box in a Rover Mini

Mostly road with occasional drag races and sprints.

Probably the 200/335 grind, as long as max RPM is not greater than 7500

Hello Mike,
I just wanted to thank you for the cams.
222/365 were just plug and play.
I ran the cams with your +4 degree exhaust sproket on the last hillclimb event .
The cams with sprockets and enlarged exaust ports were the only mods on the car since it's last hillclimb.
Here are some quotes from my mechanic and some pilots who watched the race :
"It's a rocket"
"It goes like a 2000cmc race engine"

I finished in top5 out of 40 cars and managed go as low as 1:12.9 and my last race was 1:15.35
The power band was very good considering the duration .( approx 5000 to 8000)
A+ Mike.
Thanks again.
I'll try to modify the venturi and jetting so that they can keep up with the cams.

I'll have to look at my list of profiles, and see if I have anything suitable. Probably, but I'm not sure it would be all that worthwhile.
