Camshaft selection

Post by Teo1303 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 3:17 am

Hello there

I am building a new VW 2007 cc engine ( 90.5x78 ) with EMPI HPMX 44 carbs and 40x35.5 Heads with 1.25 : 1 rockers

I am between W 120 or a FK8 cam to choose ... Which is better for me for street driving only???? My needs are for a powered 1303 about 140HP and to rev near 6500rpm

Will you help me for this please???

I would run the fk8 with 1.4 rockers, the w120 may struggle the get the top end you want.

The Engle 130 should be adequate also with 1.25 rockers
