They have adjustible cam gears and an adjustible exhaust pulley. Is there anyone on this list running these or have experiance with installing them. I live in Michigan but would travel if there was a shop that could do the job and some custom tuning. Anyone? Thanks,

While the motor's off the car, check piston to valve clearances.

The exhaust cam is turned by a toothed belt (like the 10v engine) and the intake cam is turned by a chain driven off the exhaust cam!

If you're going to rev the piss out of it, like 8000 rpms, then solid lifters and hot cams should be a real good time.

ive heard good reviews in general of cat.
i did a lot of cam talking when the loathsome blaufergnugen folk stuck me with a bad cam. i could rant Furiously but i know youre friendly w/them & will respect boundaries.
through my plight i found webcam (steve) to be most very helpful. he has a wealth of knowledge in specifically camshafts. he is also the one who analyzed my cam & found there to be improper base circle runoff that blaufergnugen played off with standard lines that did nothing but inspire me to find a lawyer to spend more money than its worth just to ...nevermind , i wont stop.
anyway, webcam is great but theyre in cali... but i trust their packaging abilities. the beat cam still sits safely through mailing 5 times and a home move.
the choice is yours, hope it all works for the best

I will probably try to get these in by the spring. The AAN'd coupe is just about finished as far as the engine being put in and 6 speed mounted so the next step will be to mount the tubular header and figure out a good exhaust setup, at this time I will get the cams mounted and start begging Mihnea for some special tuning. Hopefully by next spring I will have one hell of a monster coupe to learn how to drive.

The 20vT 3B and 7A uses that gear to turn the distributor, but on AAN/ABY/ADU engines the gear is not on the intake came because they don't use a distributor.. Although VERY few (mine) early AAN's had a cam driven cam position sensor.
