Re: Good or bad option for a 4age turbo

Feedback in your quotes Did your tuner have any ability to detect knock or were they just assuming it would not work? - Im not sure how he did detect knock, Any engine builder who suggested running the TB a tooth off would never see my business again. That is horrible advice. A thicker HG will be a ...

Re: Good or bad option for a 4age turbo

Only reason I can think is for people who need to seriously deck the block. Even then it doesn't seem like it would be a big selle...

Re: 4age 16v split cams setup

mixing cam durations: Good: "allows" for tuning of either intake flow or exhaust flow depending on which causes more of a problem. Bad: often times mixing durations doesn't allow for peak performance from either cam. 272 and 264... what are you using for management? After market ecu - cur...

Re: Do i need to re-shim???

Yes lobe pointing up, which leaves the base of the cam facing the shim, that's where you need to check clearence, what's the most clearence one can have?

Re: 20v exhaust cam on a 16v small port head

@170bhp
Tell me, this spec of 268degree and 8.2mm
Was this done the only the intake cam? Did you run stock exhaust cam?
Also what power increase?
And did you do a re-shim?

Re: 20v exhaust cam on a 16v small port head

16v cams cost an arm and a leg and do not give you much gain, So yes, working a budget we can afford to cut a cam to what spec we want,buy a set of cam gears for it, and still have money left over if we go this way over buying full after market cams Cost vs kw we will win, 20v cams here are going so...
