3sge cam swap

Postby carfunatic » Sun Feb 20, 2011 1:22 pm

ok so ive been reading the 3sge cam swap thread http://alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=14440 and i was wondering what it would take to set the timing correct if you used 2 gen3 intake cams. has anyone done this? any information would be nice. i really want to try this if i can find them.

I need help on that one too! I bought 2 third gen 3sge intake with adjustable cam gear. If someone can provide more info on how to set up timing properly and what's the best set up for cam gear it would be really appreciated...

thanks!!

well i think both of us are just trying to make sure because we would be using 2 intake cams that normally are staggered with a lower duration cam. i just want to make sure that i get the info before i start on anything that major because im going to pull the motor to do it and do the oil pump, clutch/flywheel, water pump... well pretty much anything i can replace because i dont know when it was done on this car because i havent had it very long. i dont even know how many Km are on it because i have 2 diff gauge clusters. better safe then sorry cuz the car needs to last me 3 maybe six years well how ever long im on okinawa.

Just make sure your shim to bucket clearance is correct and you have your timing right.

You will not have any troubles. Did your cams come from an automatic or manual car? they are different. You can install them straight up. Otherwise to do it properly you need adjustable cam gears, a degree wheel and enjoy learning the fun skill or dialing in cams (not fun). I used gen 2 3sge cams. They are slightly more advanced on the intake and slightly retarded on the exhaust if you install them with the stock gears. This tends to be more favourable anyway so not a problem.
