The rotor directs the intake and the exhaust spark to intake #1 and exhaust #1 and they fire together. Then rotates counter clockwise skipping the next terminals and lines up with intake #3 and exhaust #3, skips the next one and fires In. #4 and Ex. #4 and finally In. #2 and Ex. #2. The firing order is 1 3 4 2.

My plugs wires are Jacobs 8mm Spiro-Pro (straight boot). They are great and have lasted many, many years. The plug ends are silicone and molded on, you cut/crimp length at the cap end to adjust lenth. I just used a universal V8 set and cut them to length. All you need is a cheap plug wire crimp tool available at most part stores.

This is a fixed step type, I think adjustable in 3 degree steps, but cheaper than the fully adjustable type.

I had a 292 before in my truck And it did pretty good @ 6500 rpm. To me I think the 292 web cam had really good bottom end. But 300 and 310 web cams have some wicked top end. I am running a Z22 w/ 300 web cam, mikuni 44's, pacesetter headers, and MSD blaster 2 coils. Everything else is stock and my truck does its best at 6500 to 7000 rpms.

I am running the stock Z22 pistons. My Dad has a 89 Hardbody though w/ a 300 Web cam and KA24 pistons and his truck revs up to about 7500 rpms. But we shift @ 7200 rpm.

This is the one I designed, differs from ratdats in that my adjustment screws come in from the rear, that way I don't have to bore as big a hole through the gear for the hub to fit through and the main bolt will sandwhich the gear and hub together rather than just the hub. I'll only use four screws, datrats old design used four, now they use eight. I think they had problems with the gear working loose from the hub, and that's why they pulled it off the website for a while, then it came back on with eight screws... My biggest problem with my design is clearing the cam tower ends behind the gear. I plan on putting in countersinked areas for the screws to tighten in to in order to have the clearance I need...

Your welcome. If you have any questions feal free to ask. I used to run a bigger cam in my truck though on stock valve springs. I had a Crower 318. It had like a .515 lift. Then I had a 310 Web Cam. It has a .503 lift w/ 280 .050 duration.

what exactly am i looking for other than dyno and g-tech readings different unless dyno was with smaller dyno.or the feul mamagement system
At 12:29am on November 11, 2008, TigerRacing said…
.503 is a lot of lift for stock springs, I'd be really afraid of valve float at high rpms..

hey found this today, same guy you pointed me to on cardomain

You can just use stock springs. I am running a 300 Web Cam on my truck w/ stock valves and valve springs. Nothing needs to be done to the head. I have a stock head Z24 w/ a 300 webcam. The specs on the 300 webcam is .503 lift and 260 .050 duration.

Yeah, and turning too fast can even result in pulling the side out of the aluminum diff housing on those. I might not happen to you, just a heads up so if it happens, you know why...

I head ya... Not sure when I could spend that much either.

Well, I know what you mean, but with that cam gear you can tweak your cam timing to bring your peak power band up or down. Cheaper than buying several cams... You can adjust power band up for a wide open track, down for a tight track. It is expensive, but then again, everything is expensive when it comes to racing.

Hey bud, in case you're interested, DatRat.com has the adjustable L series cam sprocket for sale again, they had discontinued them some time back, these work on the Z24 as well. This allows you to shave head/deck height and still degree the cam back in...

Holy crap, found him. Looks like he found a Z18e turbo setup, those are hard to find... bolt right onto a Z22/24. Love to find one myself.

Thanks Bud! Uploaded some pics of my '86 that I rolled back in 2005... I'm rebuilding that one now with a custom long travel a-arm setup, that's where the new motor was going, but thinking of stuffing an Infinity 5.6L in it instead and putting a Ford 9in in back lol...

did your computer crash, or did I talk you out yesterday lol?

Can you point me to the pink turbo beast? Can't seem to find him!
At 6:45pm on November 6, 2008, TigerRacing said…
Saturn? Really? How did he figure that one out! Does it require any modifications? Drops in every hole? I haven't caught up to him yet, I'll have to check his truck and page out. So many people have joined it's hard to keep up.
