Camshaft differences between Kadett's and chevettes

Postby Cooltony » 21 Sep 2005, 19:46

What are the measurement differences between the two?

more importantly and further to the point will a kent cam designed for a kadett fit a chevette?

Vauxhall Astra, Kadett, Nova, Corsa 1.3 AST17 Supersports 2800 - 7500 6.95mm 11.36mm 284 Degrees 37/67 67/37 105 Degrees 0.25mm

judging by the component above it will fit a kadett nova corsa and astra? what is there to say that it wouldnt fit a chevette?

if on the off chance it would is it normal practice to tune the valves accordingly

& if anyone has carried out this modification what power band would be of correct choice for just a fast road?

thanks alot..

tune them in what way, bigger?

depends on how much you want to rev the engine really. anything from 270 degrees to 290 degrees duration is considered a fast road cam with varying lengths of power band and power dependent on cam chosen. it also depends on how much you want to spend as well. it's pointless fitting a cam of 290 degrees into a stock engine, it wouldn't work very well, and vice versa.

You wanna get in touched with Newman Cams, i emailed them earlier this year, and they will make a cam for you, to the spec you want. They will also make cam followers for you.

They are highly recommended by alot of rally boys
