The added lift and smoother idle sold me on them, but for a 100% stock valvetrain the hks 280's with their low lift and gentle ramp rates are still my #1 recommendation. 'Race' cams, you know

Okay, good marketing and a following of nutsack swingers.

I didn't give an F about Kelfords until i saw the AMS cam test. From then on they were a great option in my book. (yes i have a book o_0)

Re: My Evo

that sucks about the cams! as for my 272's they don't lope all that much. when I had my car tuned shane had thought I had adjustable gears and degreed them in since they're wasn't much lope but I definitely didn't ( thats also in a 1g awd). but good luck I hope you get something back from the seller

Re: My Evo

Safe bet cams, CBRD likes to recommend them, they are decent but I don't know anyone personally that has them....until wednesday, Silk has them in his car now...btw he made 450whp on shane's dyno on E85 & the HKS264/272 combo (IIRC).

*edit* they were GSC S1's...not sure how old they were though.

Re: My Evo

His old cams were pre-S1 I believe. He now has the S2's.

GSC makes good cams, but I like the FP4R because its a compromise between the S1 and S2 and doesn't require aftermarket valve springs. They also don't sacrifice the low-end like the Kelford 272's do.

Re: My Evo

Is this the AMS cam thread you guys are talking about: http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-eng...-cam-test.html

I was hoping to find HKS cams compared.

Re: My Evo

That's the one, Matt. Just keep in mind the test was performed with a built engine and large turbo.

Re: My Evo

Had Shane at DB do a leakdown test tonight, results are far from stellar, but they tell the tale of why my car acts how it does.

Compression: 163, 180, 165, 140
Leakdown: 18%, 3%, 12%, 52%

1, 3 and 4 were clearly leaking out the exhaust. 4 was leaking so much that you could hear it going through the exhaust manifold and turbo and didn't even have to listen at the back of the car. 2 was perfect.

Re: My Evo

If your compression was not shot, what would you have expected for power with these mods that you have listed?

Or did Shane have any insight on the estimated power?

I'm confident in the bottom end, but the head has clearly seen better days.

The car should make 300ish at DB.
