Really, I would probably recomend my 210/340 profile.
You will see power to 8500+ RPM, and still retain some level of midrange power. Anymore cam that this, and you won't start to make power until 4-5000RPM
All the profiles listed for the GT are hydraulic, and drop right in without modification.

What kinda cam can you supply for a turbo application, a BUddy of mine is building a wicked turbo project and wants to upgrade the cam if possible, he is aiming for 250 + bhp. The engine is extensively modified, full racing heads, forged pistons and bottom end etc., with a racing box.

What is a good spec cam you have for this kinda application??

Also, can you grind the following:


Duration /@.50" / lift
272 272 /230 230 /0.352" 0.352"

Probably the 210/340 would be a good cam for the turbo car, but the 200/335 would be better if he doesn't want a rough idle.
I don't have masters for the 230/352 cam you want.
Thats way too much duration for a GT motor, anyway.
If you want somethingb that wild, I have a better 226/375

What would be the maximum duration on that 226/375 cam??

The grind I asked about is available from a company in Australia, the car it would be going on will be running carbs not injection.

See this link below:

Im looking for a weekend racer type spec.

I know about that grind, and Tighe.
You can run it if you want, but its too much duration in my opinion.
Your asking for the advertised duration number. I don't do advertised numbers. They are, for the most part, meaningless.

Hello, suprf1y.

a friend of mine is looking for cams to fit in his G13B.
He wants them to make power on high revs and he isn't worried about loosing low end torque, so he's looking for cams to the (4000)5000-8500rpm range.

His mods:
cultus' pistons - 75mm
lowered cylinder head - 0.7mm
intake and exhaust ports are polished and ported
55mm Throttle Body
Toms rally chip
4-1 exhaust manifold

Now the questions: :D

What cams would you recommend?

When you talk about 210/340 cams, is it exhaust duration/intake duration?

Could you specify these parametres on your recommendation??

-Intake valve lift
-Exhaust valve lift
-Intake valve opens (degrees)
-Intake valve closes (degrees)
-Exhaust valve opens (degrees)
-Exhaust valve closes (degrees)

Can he pay by paypal??

Thanks.
Waiting for your reply!!

The lift is .340"
The duration is 210 degrees at .050" lift. Opening/closing rates are irrelavent, as the lobes are symmetrical, and his head has been resurfaced.

So, your recommendation are cams with 0.340'' lift and 210º (effective duration) for both intake and exhaust valves?

Could these cams be used with the stock hydraulic lifters and stock valve springs?

tks.

But, these cams are under the BD10 from Tighe Cams, aren't they??
They don't seem to be very agressive cams...
Are the ones you say the best choice for using above 5000rpms, knowing he has cultus pistons?

BTW, when I asked about the open/close of valves, what i wanted to ask was:

-Intake valve opens BTDC(degrees)
-Intake valve closes ABDC(degrees)
-Exhaust valve opens BBDC(degrees)
-Exhaust valve closes ATDC(degrees)

tks for your patience.

No they are not.
If you say so...
You asked for cams that would work best from 5k-8500.
This profile has been proven to work beyond 8500RPM.
If you want to run more duration than you need, you will just suffer on the bottom end.
Its your choice.
Cultus pistons will make no difference in your cam selection.
Like I said, valve event numbers are useless, as your head has been machined, and your timing altered.
The lobes are symmetrical, so if you need valve event numbers, you will have to determine your current intake, and exhaust centerline, then work back from there.

so which of these is the "economy" cam and, if you don't mind, how does it effect performance to effect better fuel economy?

also is there a core charge on the cam for my '94 metro?

On the 305/184 cam for the 3 cyl. metro on my 95 G10, aren't you loosing lift and duration with that one? I noticed on your store you have an economy grind, is that the one? And when you say economy, do you mean for better gas mileage? I guess it's a lot like my question I had on the cam sproket ;).

Supf1y:

I am looking for a cam re-grind for a Swift 1.6 16v 4wd. As you probably know this is the G16b SOHC engine.

Use of vehicle: Everyday, fast road with a hint of trackday if I'm lucky.

I am most interested in the mid range. Gains everywhere are nice!

Engine modification to accompany the cam:

Gas flowed cylinder head
- (similar to modifications found on http://www.teamswift.net/~madzuki)
Re-profiled valves, anti reversion groove on inlet etc.
Skimmed head as much as possible to increase compression ratio
- (I do not know exact compression ratio yet)
Free flow stainless exhaust
Modified cam sprocket to allow the cam to be timed in.
Lightened and balanced connecting rods and pistons.

Potential future engine modifications:

4-2-1 tubular exhaust manifold
Fuel injection via throttle bodies or G16b baleno multi point.

I would be sending you my standard cam.

Please advise the most suitable profile, price, lead time and shipping cost to the UK.

Also if I am able to get a couple of other 4wd owner's from the UK to have a cam re-grind is there any chance of a "group buy" price?

Kind regards,

alex

Let me look at my profiles for that application.
I don't get alot of requests for the SOHC 16V stuff.

Group buys are no problem.
I'm sure we can work something out.

Hi Suprf1y,

I got mk1 g13b Gti.
I'm thinking that hollow camshaft may snap so I might be inetrested to purchase one of your profile.
Anyway for this engine, I bought Group A Suzuki Sports camshafts.
I dont know much about lift and duration but I think I got 256/248 Suzuki Sports item.
Do you know much about these camshafts?

Due to small wheel and tyre setup of my Mini I have changed final drive to 3.582..(I think)
I will be using R1 carbs and no ECU to limit revs.
Can you tell me which one of your profile will be same as what I got and rev range for it?
The car is lighter than Swift, my flywheel is lightened and wheels are 10".

It will be everyday car with some fun over the weekend at trackdays.
It won't be race car but I would like to have good top end power.

Cheers
Atchi

I don't know anything about those Suzukisport cams, so if anybody has any info on them, please post it here.
It depends on what your max RPM will be, and where you want the powerband.
Do you care about the idle, or low end power?

Hi,

For G13b engine without internal haven't been balanced with 19mm T-belt.
What would you think be rev limit?
I'm thinking of lumpy idel will be fine due to manual choke with R1 carbs and just set rpm bit higher than 1k.
Would driveability be changed with lumpy cams if you have a LSD?
I have been told that mid renge will improve with R1 carbs.

Cams from you, will it be from mk2 onwards(solid) instead of mk1 DOHC?

Cheers
Atchi

Hi. I am interested in a cam for my 89 G10turbo. It is stock internally, just FMIC, exhaust, & intake. I was wondering what kind of cam you would recommend for it. I would like to have more mid-to upper range power as it is a turbo and thats where the power would be anyways(right?) I know nothing about cams so i am trusting your knowledge and expertise. Please pm me with info and possible price please. Thanks alot.

Kyle

hey mike,

any chance that you have a cam for the T3 that will not have any issues with this set-up.

i've got the turbine tech 8g turbo and its megasquirted (MS1) with 330cc injectors and vitara pistons... need anymore info?

if you don't have one, whats the lead time, do you need a core, and whats the cost with shipping to Edmonton?

Probably the 218/350 cam would be the best for a daily driver.
The 222/365 is good too, but the idle is fairly rough.
Cams are $175, no core required, and shipping would be under $20
I'l pay $35 for your old cam, if you want to send it .
