Not a fan of test beds for engine break-in. You can't put a load on them to properly break in the rings.

Web no longer offers new cams, they do offer their hardweld service - this welds new material to the lobe so they can be reground without loosing "base circle". They are not cheap (currently listed for $1050 per pair) Just for discussion purposes..... Cat offers a 252/222 cam with 8.5mm li...

Re: My 2024 4AGE 16v build

stock early cams are 204 degrees at .050, later cams are 198. Duration at a specific lift is a more accurate measure of a cam then "advertised duration" As far as the Cat cams are concerned, I can also get matched sets (same duration for both). Stock cams stop making power at 6600 rpm. The...

Not sure why I haven't seen this thread before......... If your budget is correct, "3500-4000 $ budget" you will be tough pressed to build much. A 7AG would add a bit more as well. I'd recommend you start listing the costs of all you have mentioned, add in rebuilding parts (bearings, pumps...

Another not a fan for a 7AG 20V, the intake valves are too small, compared to a fully ported big valve largeport head. also the TRD F/A ITBs don't require an adapter for use on a largeport head. I wouldn't want to see the air flow disruption with an adapter that goes from the long wide TRD ITB to th...
