I was wonder what all needed to be done to a stock exhaust cam to use it as an intake cam? I know a chunk needs to be cut off at the end, is that it? I guess I can compare the 2 cams, but wanted to hear from someone whos done this, or looked into it.
Thanks,
Tim

Your garage mate is the man to ask, or take an exhaust cam and lay it into the cam bearings on the intake side. This makes it fairly evident what needs to be done.

Andrew,
I haven't been able to get a hold of Rizk, no clue where he is or what he's been up to.
I'll have to borrow Ray's 1.8 16v head and see how it would fit.

Laters,
Tim

dont use the timing gear to time it then, you'll have to time it at a 90 degree offset, in another words, the lobes at the #1 cyl must be facing each other at a 45 degree angle

I'll bump my topic regarding this for your, I have a premade cam for this for 45 shipped if you are interested, but you would be better off with a euro intake cam, I have done back to back tests on my own car to know this for stone fact.
