1.8 8V EX engine High lift cams

Post by Hyde » Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:36 pm

Was hoping someone had any information on high lift cams, a website or place I can get my hands on them for this engine?
Thanks

The usual suspects - Kent, Piper, Newman - all have various cams with varying profiles.
To get the most out of them you'll need your cylinder head reworked, inlet modified and a decent exhaust system. No to mention a Weber carb and someone to rejet and tune it all when done.

Ye all that sorted, have a new weber ready to go on and almost finished porting the cylinder head. Also almost finished making Hydraulic pipe bends to fabricate the exhaust manifold. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.
