|Magus2727||You can assume that. But some that are close you have to just I stall them and see. The .381 is a good starting point, but these are castings. Each casting may have a few thousandths ( or more?) of variation on the non machined surfaces. Its cheaper to cast the part and machine down your tolerances then to have those tolerances built into the initial cast.|

If I'm assuming right (bad idea) Anything with .381 lift or less won't need any relief grinding on the head? I've got a set of cams in my closet that I'd love to have under the hood and upgrade springs and adjustable gears when I have more cash. It would be great if I could spend a few hours getting these in and out of my closet without the added expense and headache of tearing the head off of my daily driver.

I don't see what your talking about. Your right about making sure there is no spring pressure on the caps your tightening. The instructions look good to me. No one's ever said anything like this before?

do it your self?
$30 for TDC & Cam Tool
$200 adjustable CAM gears (New, less if used)
$400 for Cams
$250 for new valve springs
$100 For head work (to grind down possible interference problems with new cams)
$400 NA Tune from Tom ( I think that's what he charges)

How much does it take to buy performance cams, install, and tune?
I always wanted a higher performance came for my 2.0L zetec. It's just a normal 2002 zx3. How much would every thing cost?

|boborc||Hey, new to this forum but I'am doing a cam install on a 2.0 zetec and was looking for some info. Sleepyboy I was lookng at your links and that torque pattern just doesn't seem right,is that correct???you just tighten them in a straight line? am I missing something? It goes against everything that i was shown but i never torqued a cam that was having valve spring pressure on it so maybe there is a different way???Any help or feedback would be great. Thanks|

|kmtalko||K cuz the tuning place asked if theres a port for the PCM and I wasnt sure. Then they asked if I was familiar with diablo sport, but I thought that was only for SVT's. I'll have to do some research i suppose. Thanks for the input.|

|kmtalko||I'm interested in getting my stock motor tuned. If I don't have SCT or a tuner, how do they go about changing the stock ECU?|
