• SpeedFactory Racing camshafts are designed and manufactured using new chill-cast blanks for superior wear characteristics and to eliminate any possible issues with post-heat treatments etc.
• Upgraded valve springs are required. For optimal results, the camshaft must be degreed with an adjustable cam gear.
• Special Note: An adjustable cam gear is necessary to achieve correct camshaft timing in a D16Y8 setup. Dyno tuning to achieve optimal results with your setup is highly recommended. Results will vary based on the quality and combination of parts used and tuning. Improperly installed camshafts can cause catastrophic damage. High-performance camshafts put greater stress on valvetrain components which will cause higher wear rates..
⚫ NEVER USE AN IMPACT GUN TO INSTALL THE CAM GEAR!!! Use a properly calibrated torque wrench and torque cam gear bolt to 231b-ft. Use a small drop of removable thread locker like BLUE Loctite on the bolt. Initial engine startup procedure after installation of your new camshaft is critical - the majority of all issues arise in this period and have to do with inadequate lubrication, improper valve lash, or the use of followers that are not in good condition. • Make sure followers are in excellent condition, any scuffing or scoring will result in accelerated lobe and rocker wear • Make sure the entire cam and followers have a liberal amount of quality assembly lube applied • DO NOT let the engine start without first cranking for oil pressure if it is a new engine or just had an oil filter change • Make sure valve lash has been set properly with the engine cold • Use a quality engine oil with high levels of ZDDP SpeedFactory Racing D16 SOHC VTEC Street Savage Camshaft
