My car is a 2000 1.0L 5speed, 113k miles. I found a used xfi cam & pulley (with only 150k miles) at the local JY. Measured the lobe height to confirm. The xfi pulley is for a square-tooth timing belt. From what I've read here, the Mk4-5's have round-tooth timing belts. If that's all I have to worry about, just put on a crank pulley from an early 90's car?

Or would I want to put a different cam pulley onto the xfi cam with more cam timing advance than original? I'm looking for max mpg, but don't want to be on the ragged edge of pinging. Thanks.

Some have mentioned that the round-tooth belts last longer than the square-tooth belts. That would be nice.

The advance is ground into an original xfi cam if I am not mistaken. Just use the cam and your original gear. 3-tech has an economy reground cam and advanced gear set also, used as a pair. I have 3-tech's cam and gear set in my 91 and I am very happy with the performance.

I sold this car to a friend at work. I now have a Saturn L which is an Opel Vectra B.

Use your original sprocket.

Got it installed with the original (2000) cam sprocket and a new timing belt. Drove fine on a short try-out. Will evaluate performance and mpg and post when I have results to report.

I haven't driven a lot lately so it took a while to run a tank of fuel. 40mpg

Specifics: 97 1.0L, 113k mi, 5speed, 4.11 final drive, xfi cam, 175/65/14 tires at 35f/31r psi (ride was too harsh at higher psi), running a/c (recirc) with compressor on/off as needed, plenty of EOC, conservatively driven, mixed hwy and city. Everything seems to be running fine.

The increased torque has improved drivability but I'm disappointed with the mpg. My old 4-door 1.3L 5sp with similar setup got 40mpg and was more usable.

your tire pressure is WAY too low, try 45PSI at least... Also have you checked your mileage via GPS? speedo could be off by as much as 10%
