    We measured Redblock cam valve events; here's what we got.

    Pretty poorly most times, but this forum has nothing to do with that.

    We measured Redblock cam valve events; here's what we got.

    Actually, the overall 0.050" duration I have on the M is a bad calculation, it should be 201*, not 196*. As I said, sometimes the calculations are wrong. I appreciate pointing it out. I can't explain the difference in intake lobe center.

    We measured Redblock cam valve events; here's what we got.

    Well, Volvo's figures are based on some weird, arbitrary checking number. The V cam, for example, is based on 0.7mm (0.028") valve clearance, at which point the intake valve begins to open at 11*BTDC. The H and K cams use 0.5mm (0.020") as a checking figure. Nobody anywhere uses these...

    '93 940 lh2.4 b230ft swap into '90 lh2.2 245

    Thanks! 100% what we were going for. The 16T I got from you maybe a year ago or so is for this car.

    '93 940 lh2.4 b230ft swap into '90 lh2.2 245

    This car also has a do88 intercooler, just to point out that you're not limited to the factory stuff. Really, that's just a testament to how well the do88 is made.

    '93 940 lh2.4 b230ft swap into '90 lh2.2 245

    92 940. The base needed a bunch of modification, but we wanted to keep it.

    IPD Billet Cam Concerns - 2024 Edition!

    You don't get this on a BMW forum. We have better nerds.

    We measured Redblock cam valve events; here's what we got.

    We also have to advise you all on something unsavory we've observed. Many aftermarket camshafts (The IPD VX, this KL T3, the one from Jones) are ground with a BUNCH of retard built in. Like 10*, or thereabouts, and this is based off of measurements with a degree wheel. I won't bore you with...

    IPD Billet Cam Concerns - 2024 Edition!

    I also use the Auto Ricambi shims. They also come in a broader range of thicknesses.

    IPD Billet Cam Concerns - 2024 Edition!

    You didn't happen to measure if there was any nose wear, did you? I'd have been concerned about this also, particularly because you can point directly at a potential cause.

    Where do you like cam? Adv or ret

    Bear in mind that a piston's speed and motion isn't linear. Because the vertical motion is controlled by a rotational motion, the piston moves both fairly little and fairly slowly at and on both sides of TDC. If you're selecting the hierarchy of valve events relative to engine character, IVC...

    10 CAM degrees. Yikes.

    cams, injectors, exhaust, intake and head porting

    I try to avoid that because it's not helpful, kind of like making a statement like this isn't helpful. Sometimes, however, I do ask specific questions in an effort to provide the best possible answer to the question posed, such as "What kind of grade are you trying to maintain 70mph on?" which...

    If you're not using a dyno, shoot for straight up. If you've had the head milled, use the cam gear to restore the factory straight up position.

    Do it on a dyno is the right answer.
