Ok So, I more than likely can do this by myself, but I like to have someone hold my hand on this one.

I have an adjustable cam gear and a G grind cam that I like to throw into the 1.7 :)rolleyes:) yes I know....

Anyhow, now that I have liberated the flow by way of the exhaust. I thought I could but the g grin in there.

If anyone her is going to cincy and like to help or take pictures we can make this one a how too for 8v's

Thanks,
el t

Please provide your seat of the pants dyno impressions. I have a G cam and adjustable cam sprocket (came on the carb'd big valve head I bought that I won't be able to bolt on my CIS car). I've got the standard dual downpipe and a 2 in. exhaust.

I'd be interested to see what you think and please share your timing specs.

Stock cam in 1.7L engine just flat out stinks - does not make any power past 4500RPM.

Hey this is post 1234 for me...pretty cool :D

Do you have a shim kit and the valve adjusting tools?

(and maybe a valve cover gasket)
Damn it Jim....always thinking....I do not have the shims, but yes to the gasket

If we figure out the shims issue and we do this I will make sure to have these written:thumbup: down and will share that too on the how to.
