In most cases only the high specification camshafts will require modifications to the cylinder head to allow clearance, but it is recommended that a check is always made due to the fact that some head castings can vary dramatically. This is best checked by placing the camshaft into a bare cylinder head & rotating the cam through 360-degs marking anywhere with a felt pen where the lobe touches the head casting. In most cases there may only be a few points of contact, but the greater the lift of the camshaft, the more likely contact will occur. It is normally a simple process with a dremal or die grinder to remove these high spots on the cylinder head. We offer a CNC machining operation to carry out a full clearance modification which will work even on our high specification cams HEAD-CLC-1.

The HT01 Hydraulic turbo cams for the 2.0L LET engine are a nice upgrade from the standard cams they have the potential with right Turbo and correct ancillaries to produce bet tween 300 to 350BHP.* It is possible to use standard valve spring and cap assembly but with higher boost pressures we would uprated Caps and platforms with double valve springs

All SBD camshafts have been designed in conjunction with Kent Cams and extensively tested on the dynamometer. Because of the costs involved in developing and testing, we charge a premium price for all our own cam profiles. If however, you wish to purchase Kent Cam profiles from their normal range of cams standard listings, these will be available at normal Kent Cams prices.

All Exhaust cams shown are shortened for Distributor less use if you intend on using a Distributor please remove the 'S' from the end of part number when ordering.

*Power gains can only be achieved provided your engine has the components to complement it. E.g. exhaust manifold & system, induction system & cylinder head porting where required. If you look at our upgrade kits they will give you more help.
