cams and turbo.
Hi guys, It's been long time since i looked into this site and also posted.
Anyway, I've been thinking seriously recently to put in a tiny turbo for a soft boost to help take off
but not looking for a huge boost since the samurai wasn't made for racing along the highways anyway...
After talking to some of the mechanics, I decided not to since it's gonna cost some money just for fabrication.
So, I thought that I amy put in a new cam.....but MY QUESTION is that "by putting a new cam, do I need
to also change new seats for where the cam lobe contacts the thing that lifts the valve?"
My reason for asking is that since the engine has been stock all this while, it have a wear pattern
that will definitely be different from the new cam (no wear at all). Will changeing just the new cam cause me to
have to work on the clearence every now and then till the wear pattern sinks in?
I know it's impossible to have top end speed and huge torque at low end with one cam. I am looking more into
torque at low to medium RPM (between standstill till 3500) and also trying not to sacrifice the top speed.
The engine sees constant 4000 rpm on freeway and sometimes when I feel wild, it sees 5500 to 6000 RPM
Anyone knows of the type of cams I should get? I see that Glenn of Summit Offroad offer two type from Iskenderian Cam
and at the same time, Dave of AZ sells a larger selection of cams from AAPAwith various RPM ranges.
Dave's range of cams even confuse me more....
Please reply soon as my brother is visiting me and hopefully I can get him to buy on from USA for me.
Can someone steer me to the correct cam?
Thanks in advance
