Isky Cam Install Help

Hello guys,

I have a 1.3 FI engine and I want to replace the stock head with a 1.6 head and install an Isky cam while I have everything apart. Problem is, I don't have any manuals and the cam didn't come with any instructions. Has anybody out there done this swap that can help me out?

Thanks,
James Hiers

Re: Isky Cam Install Help

The best thing to do is get a service manual!! The actual cam swap is easy. Just follow the directions in the manual and substitute the isky when reinstalling.
The install basically involves removing the timing pully, loosing all the valve lash screws and removing the distributor. The cam is removed from the opening covered by the distributor. The cam bearings get progressivly smaller across the head, so the cam is just "slid" out the back. The manual will fill in all the details!

Re: Isky Cam Install Help

BTW, there is another thread on the BBS that basically states that a TBI EFI engine will not benefit from a cam because the injector/ECM combo can only compensate for a narrow range of changes in the system.
I was thinking of a low-end cam in a FI 1.6 8v but, I'm rethinking it now. This is new to me and needs further research.

Whazoo, everyone I have talked in the past to about the cam in an TBI EFI have told me the very same. I've heard either "I don't know..." or "It won't benefit the engine...". Just FYI. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Call Brent at TrailTough. He's played with all kinds of cams with EFI and the last comment I heard from him was that you can't beat the stock cam. The computer will continuely try to correct to a stock configuration. Bottom line...keep the stock cam
