Don't the jts cams dissolve away?

TS cams are better - get some Medium\Fast road cams

yes, i know that they tend to get round( cause: 10w60 oil and poor lub...), also have superior valve lift and duration.
if anyone tried them on ts engine, share with us your experience

btw: nice gtv ,center console is made with hydrotransfer ?

The 10W60 didn't cause the cam wear.
I ran 10W60 in my 156TS from new and never had a problem. I had that car from 1999 until 2013 and it is still going fine.
So don't blame the correct spec of 10W60 oil for wearing the cams.

The JTS cams have the drive for the high pressure fuel pump, so they may not fit the TS head anyway.
