Some fast questions:

I have 2 sets of cams laying around here.

1. Kent sport cams... 262 degrees and 9.34 mm of lift ( both sides )
2. Piper cams............ 264 degrees in and 260 out. 10.03 mm lift in and 9.32 out

Which one will be better ? kent say's that the have 20 bhp and piper12 bhp profit

can I use a piper cam and kent cam together ? so piper 10.03 lift inlet and kent 9.34 exhaust side ?

Also fitted with vernier pulley's

Are you using them in a 1.6 or 2 litre? I would stick to using them in the manufactured pairs as that's how they would been designed and little differance in exhaust cams, seems quite a diffetance in stated gains on a simular spec but can't take stated gains as gospel. I have 270 newman cams with 10.79mm lift and they needed some head modifications for the lift clearance

bigger valves and ported head? What injection carbs? I'm looking to replace cams with 285 ones but the 270 gave a good spread

indeed, ported,polished and bigger valves
Rover turbo inlet with frst injectors

hmm, if you want to sell them, when you bought the 285, let me know

Looks good, what ecu are you using? I have a spare new set of cams that were using for a spare engine, have you already got 2 sets? What power you expecting? As for vernier pullys thought they not worth it unless having them set on RR, is that a silvertop with blacktop cam cover?

Post subject:  Re: cams issue

yes a silvertop wth blacktop cover
just the standard one..but it's chiped. Looking for an omex or dta

I have almost got 2 sets.. next one is on his way ( I hope, the bloke isn't f*cking with me )

With all the mods, I hope 150 bhp or more, thing goes like a rocket
as for the vernier, it's easy'r to set up on a rolling road. can do with normal ones....

I spent £100 on vernier pullys but still set them with the standard in keyed settings, got 173bhp with emerald ecu, but that was ,£550 with a 2 litre want to swap cams to get over 180

Post subject:  Re: cams issue

that's what I like from an NA engine, about 180 bhp
vernier pulley's and piper cams where 170 quid together...not allot :)

what's your setup ?

That's a bargin, 2 litre, DIY ported head, gsxr throttle bodies and emerald ecu

Post subject:  Re: cams issue

the kent cams where 20 euro (think that is 12 quid )
hmmm... maybe with a aftermarked ecu I also could get at those marks :)
