    Silly question, I've seen people put 2.0 parts, specifically cams and intake manifolds on the 1.6 and getting more power for a relatively low cost. I'm very interested in this for both the performance gain and out of interest in tuning. Having said that I have the 1.6 eco (couldn't find non-eco...
  2. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I need some help from those far more knowledgeable than me. I am about to change my cams to some CatCam items and I thought whilst I was there I would install the CatCam vernier pullies. The issue is the new exhaust pulley has no cut outs for the cam sensor to read 😬. Has anyone got experience...

    Engine turns over. Bores look good. Head removed for inspection 112mm height so looks to be unskimmed. Oil looks quite clean. 116 engine but can be adapted for 105 series No carbs with the engine. Can probably find manifolds if you need them. £350 without cams or £500 with cams Will split...

    I know that a few 3.0 owners like Corrie and Gertie run GTA1 profiles on both inlet and exhaust sides, and have had good gains. Are original 3.2 cams a drop-in into the 3.0 motor? What else do I need if I'm just dropping those in on the intake side and moving my 3.0 inlets to the exhaust side...

    Does anyone have some high lift cams for sale for a 1600 Nord engine. 10.9s preferable but anything in good condition considered except very high lift racy ones. Cheers Adrian

    Hi all has anyone fitted the Colombo Bariani fast road cams to there GTA and if so was it worth the expense for the gain in performance. Allan

    As above, I've compared them out of the car and I think the cam lobe positions don't differ between any of the cams, they're just timed differently. So I don't think there would be an issue.... ETA apart from the cam timing sensor. It's on the exhaust cam. Ergo stupid question.

    Like the title says please can someone run me through the advantages of fitting GTA cams to a V6. I've got a stock standard 24valve 3.0 V6 and I'm interested in adding GTA cams for a bit more go. My questions are: Do I need to replace inlet and exhaust cams with the GTA items or do I only need...

    Hi - I am rebuilding (or hope to be) an early Sprint Veloce. I would like to put a 1.7 engine in, but i want it to look exactly the same under the bonnet. So I was thinking is it possible to to fit the 1.5 cam housings to 1.7 heads? or 1.5 heads on the 1.7 block?
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    A tip that works for me; if like me you want to leave your dashcam running when you are parked up in a car park to catch anyone who damages it then it is worth investing in one of these: My camera isn't...
  14. South Africa
    Alright - I know cams have been discussed ad-infinatum but dredging through the information is slow and not specific to my needs. I'm due a belt change and want to look at going to GTA1 cam profile. Ideally I want to get a set of second hand OEM exhaust cams to have re-ground so that I can keep...

    I am in the process of rebuilding a 1.7 boxer engine and I am looking for some performance cams for fast road / race. I have heard that Piper 349's are a good bet ? (previous forum discussion). I have option on running hydraulic tappets or solid tappets. Just let me know if you have any...
