Anyone know if the camshaft from the distributor drive 16v single overhead cam are the same as the cam from the coil on plug 16v?

Other than the trigger wheel on the end for the cmp it pretty much is. I'm not sure if that part can be swapped.

I would honestly have to say no.

Do you need the 98+ cam? They're easy to find down here

I have a 2000 swift and want to put in a esteem cam but I can only find the 98 99 ones with distributors still.

98 esteem is DIS. 97 was the last of the distributor.


if you find one let me know how it helps. i never bothered to check the difference in lift.

It is dis, but not cop. The coils are on the old distributor housing side. I'll get it this weekend if I don't work..

Makes sense. I only had time to take a brief look at it, but I think I found my new tb too!

What are clearances for the valves on these? I know its 6 and 8 for the hemi 2valve heads. And the tb is a nice upgrade. Really helps top end. Now the cam and an exhaust should suit this well. Maybe tranny too

The 1.6 cam is the same lift, with a very small difference in duration. It's probably not worth all the work to change it. What tranny?

I'm aware its not much difference but I want to give it a shot. I'll probably swap a 410 tranny with another metro.


Still looking for valve clearances

4.10 is a good choice

Did you search for the lash? I did.

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=37655&p=283650&hilit=16V+sohc+valve+lash#p283650

Also posted it here

viewtopic.php?f=30&t=48005&p=417867#p417867

so it's easier to find

I found clearances right after my last post. I got cam in and adjusted. Started it and it fired right up. No butt dyno till I go to work in the morn. Install didn't take me but an hour and a half.

Butt dyno results:

:thumbsup:


Its worth it for 20 bucks. Its only a small or SMALL difference. If you run accross one at the junkyard, grab it. Then the next day you are bored and have a couple hours, throw it in. I'll say it again, its worth the 20 bucks but that's about it. The can and tb would be nicely complimented with a better flowing exhaust I'm sure. Mine is about to fall in half at resonator and muffler is rusted to hell and probably plugged. But I'm holding out for boost!!

Fwiw I got 46.783 mpg with this setup. Before I averaged 40. No change in course, 45 miles each way 60-70mph occasional unknown high speeds I can't speak of due to passing slow drivers.
