Default Finally; performance cams!

Taken from percision boost on daewootech:

"I have a US company that is willing to make reasonably priced Cams for the 2.0L/2.2L engines but I wanted to see if the pricing is good enough for people to show interest

In general the testing showed a 10hp to 25hp gains depending on setup.... but those were on two very aggressive versions which require solid lifters

I want to get a slightly watered down version that should be good for 10hp to 15hp.

The price would be somewhere in the range of $350 USD per set of cams ( 1 exhaust cam , 1 intake cam )

If significant interest is shown it's possible that I might be able to get this lower.... say $325.... hard to say... depends on quantity.

These cams are formed out of solid blanks.... they aren't crappy reprofiled factory cams... very high quality.

Anyways....... I need you guys to let me know about this as I won't go ahead with the project unless there are a few guys interested.

Chris"

"I don't really want to say the name of the company quite yet.
The cams come from South America (where Astra's are common) so it's unlikely anyone knows the company name.
This company has been building race cams since 1964... and the blanks are built out of high quality cast iron.
They have a USA office.... which is way easier to deal with than getting stuff from South America. ( trust me on this one... it's way way harder than getting things from UK/Europe )

Like I said.... their primary business is for race applications.... and if they won't sell their cams in a less aggressive form I'm sure I can get a bulk quantity reground to new specifications in the USA.

Since they are allready very aggressive I'm sure it would be easy to grind them down a little.... may increase the cost slightly but I'm hoping the original manufacturer will be willing to negotiate.

The only reason reprofiling costs so much is that they typically take OEM cams and add material to raise lift and duration.... where as these ones don't need material added.... the grinding job is extreemly simple and there are dozens of companys which will do high quality regrinds.

Who knows.... I could even get the "blanks" for a cheap price and have them ground to my own specifications.

Lots of options.... but the only way to go forward with this is if there is significant interest.

I would buy, But alot goes into cams. I would rather see a company
like Comp Cams do the research on what is best for this car and how far you can go before you have a total loss. Basic bolt ons are one thing, Going internal is a new game.
