View Full Version : 22re camshaft

01-30-2008, 12:08 PM
So while doing my headgasket I noticed quite a large ring ridge at the top of my cylinder and with close to 300 000 kms I decided to do a rebuild. Since I've always wanted to do a cam anyway I found a kit on ebay for 300 with a higher lift longer duration cam and I'm just wondering for those who run a cam in their 22re what would be a better choice to give me better throttle response and more power.

I will be installing 5.29's in the near future and will be looking to run tires 35-37's depending on what I can find.

They offer a 261C, 268C and 270C
The Kit seems very reasonable for what it includes and it states that i can use my stock valve train with the cam.

I run a low rpm/high torque cam in my 22r. With the engine .020 bored over,header, webber and shaved .010 with 5.29's and 37" MTR's. My power band is between 1200 - 3000rpm, not so good for rpm, but it has great torque. It depends on what you want to do. Just remember that the cam is the heart of the engine and you build around the cam.
