Re: Funk32's 04 STi race car Build V-Mount,TS EFR7163

well I went to clean my avcs cam gears and to re-install everything I was going to use the cam to make sure it is all aligned again... well FML I found out my intake cams are both cracked at the alignment pin so I can not use them any more, they wont even go into the cam gear. I can't be sure when they cracked or broke, whether it was from improper install when they were done 5 years ago or if they just killed themselves. Either way I need new cams and I wasted sending these cams off to WPC FML!!!

now looking for some Spec-c cams.. anyone have a set for sale lol

Sorry to hear that.

They have around 270 duration (intake) and 256 ish (exhaust) from what I have heard. Keen to see the results as they are unlikely to have the issues seen on GSC AVCS cams these days.

Other option is BC 280 or 272.

Take heart...

Every new project = new tools to buy.

Every broken engine part = full justification to buy new, higher performance engine part!

:tup:

That's why I specified "higher"!

I was merely trying to help you rationalize the re-buying process.

Sort of a group therapy thing.

Yeah where we look at each other and try to convince ourselves that we are actually "normal" :D

Spec-c, piper or kelford cams are kinda on my list right now. But with that scary thread on Nasioc about the newer gsc and kelford cams, makes me want to stay away from them.

Ya more great quality parts from Mark. Fitment was perfect. I just need to get the sway bar re-coated as the white line bar is rusting.
