New Motor & Cam Question
**PathogeN** Offline
OK...MOTOR IS DONE!!! Should be done middle of this week or so(i'm busy with work and school n stuff) but heres the new bird "resume" i promised now that everything is finalized. Some other changes in addition to the motor (example: the new rear springs to take the back down a bit since it was riding a bit higher than the front and the caster camber plates). Install pics to follow when theres something cool to show. Since we bitch when the cars break we get to brag when they get fixed right?

What kinda cam would be most beneficial with this setup and where can I find one? I saw a few online a while back but can't remember where.

Thanks y'all!

Good grief man! That is a hellacious setup you've got there! For all that work I'm surprised you didn't go with the T3 setup. I do miss the quick spool up of the IHI though. Anyway, I've heard a lot of people are going to the Adjustable degree cam pulleys. This may allow you to fine tune all that extra juice you've got. Check Esslinger or Racer Walsh for a good one. Also, Pete D. might have some good tips on that kind of setup. Good Luck, Les.

I went with a motorsport roller cam kit, its a upgrade for the svo`s along with a adjustable camshaft timing gear from Tiny Avenger. Was originally going to order everything from Racer Walsh, but customer service is piss poor. After dealing with Racer Walsh for about 6 weeks for parts that were "in stock" when i placed the order, I got a catalog from Tiny Avenger. Cant praise the owner Dave enough, very friendly and knowledgeable about the cars. Not pushy, gives you a honest opinion of what works, what doesnt.

Heck if you are going to stick with the IHI I would just get a late model ranger cam. It will work well with the IHI. plus they make good power with an adjustable cam pulley.
