I posted this on the Isuzu board, where the cams have been selling fairly well. It also aplies here. Thanks for the business.

Because business has been better than I expected, I am taking steps toward making it more 'official'. I have done my best to keep correspondence, shipping, packaging, etc. as proffesional as I can. I have also had alot of requests for a phone number, so now I have one strictly for your questions. Please PM me for the number if you want to call and discuss grinds, movies, the weather, etc. :D

I am new to the list and have read all of them to this point, I think. I am using a Geo 1.0 on a two place ultralight aircraft and am building a Trike to put one on also. My concern is what are the valve springs rated for? I know that as you go up in performance cams, at some point, stronger springs are needed to avoid valve float. Also, I read some place that some one is using bigger Toyota (I believe) valves on the 1.0. Anyone have any info on that? Bob

I have some pics of my ultralight with the Geo 1.0 on it if anyone wants to see it. Also a pic of a 1.3 liter engine with a Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle FI setup that is working very well for the guy who did it. The spacing is just right for the 1.3 and you can take one of the injector/throttle bodies off and it will fit the 1.0. Reven Rotors makes a 3 into 1 header and a single log style like I used on my ultralight. It has a built in muffler and adds about 5hp over the 3/1 Raven claims. Bob

In USD, abround $225-250 + core
I don't do alot of the SOHC 16V stuff, but the pricing is similar to the GTi cams. 16V is still 16 lobes.

I don't know about the Toyota valves, but I do know that the stock springs are of such high quality, they are good for .375 lift, and 8000 + RPM. I have used them under these conditions, and never heard of a valve spring failure in a 1.0l Suzuki motor. I carefully inspect, and test each one while I rebuild my heads. So far, I have never seen a bad one.

If you are referring to the cam grinding, the lobe has enough material to allow regrinding of a new profile. The lifter preload is sufficient to support this also.

I run mechanical lash adjusters on my '00 16v SOHC G13B and have had no problems with Mike's cam.

Why not?
What is the difference in material between a reground cam, and a stock cam?
Nothing.
Some people think that regrinds are not hardened after grinding. They're right. They aren't, but stock cams aren't hardened either. They're cast iron, and don't need to be hardened.
Would I advise it? Sure, as long as you have a way of adjusting lash.

I have added another profile to the 89-up 3cyl. cam list.
Due to a high amount of requests, I now have a 'fuel economy' cam. It is a profile with shorter duration, and lesser lift than the stock cam. This would be of benefit to somebody who uses their car primarily as a commuter vehicle. It is not a performance cam. In conjunction with a +10 timing advance sprocket, you will feel stronger bottom end power, and recieve superior overall fuel mileage.
Testing is underway to document the actual MPG gains, but this is a known quantity, and it works.
Lift is .305" (7.75mm), and duration at .050" is 184

Greetz,

I own a Suzuki Swift GTI MK2 from 1991 and still have my stock cams installed.
I'm looking for cams that gives me not a hugh amount of extra power but noticable increase in power.
What i do want is that the fuel consumption doesn't increase a lot, because i know you can make very aggresive cams with louds of power but then the fuel economy is very bad.
I'm just looking for some extra torque and a bit of extra power in the upper rev band but i don't want to sacrifice the fuel economy.

do you have a profile that meets this demand?

And i understand i have to ship them to you, how long will it take for you to make this regrinds because i don't have a spare cams, so i won't be able to drive as long that the cams or with you.

And what are the costs for a GTI, shipping costs included?

Maurice

I have a profile that will give you another 1000-1500RPM, a nice power increase, and not reduce your gas mileage too much. You don't get something for nothing.
Cost is USD$275/pair. Shipping time and cost depends entirely on how you choose to ship them. It could be a few days ($$), or 6-8wks. Investagate the shipping options on your end first.

mike makes great cams, but you'll want to make sure you're getting the right one.

I run a Vitara 1600 16v in my Samurai, do you have a grind that will increase the mid-range without killing the bottom end torque. I am not looking for maximum power at the top end just a useful increase across the rev range. Just to be different it has a Swift 16V inlet manifold with a SU HIF 44, a converted 413 dizzy & a converted 8v Thorley manifold.

I have a grind suitable for that. I don't have cores right now, but should be able to get some in the spring.

Mike I looked but couldnt find the info.

My application.
Suzuki/Maruti Esteem 1.3 Ltr / 4Cylinder / 8 Valve / Carbed engine / 65 BHP stock from factory.

What is the stock durations on this. (Need this info to calculate gains against your cams)

What would you recomend for a street / drag strip setup for this.

My Second Application
Maruti / Suzuki Baleno 16 Valve / Fuel Injected /
Stock Duration
Recomended duration for Drag / Top speed.

Mileage isnt a consideration in either apps.
Price if we send cams.
Price if we dont send cams.
