Does anyone have any feedback or experience running Tomei Pro Cams? I'm considering the 264 or 272 Pro Cam. I'm currently running an Alpha 9 on stock motor but I'm building the motor, going 1mm oversized ferra valves, springs, etc and likely upgrading to Alpha 10's. The car will be a summer daily driver and I'd trade a small bit of top end to for better response. It may see the drag strip a coupole times a year.

Thanks.

Tuned 2 cars with 272 Tomei's. Here is a customer car of them at idle with some stage 3 turbos
. They sound pretty nice! I really like them, that's why I carry them.

Did you find them fairly responsive? Would you happen to have any dyno sheets for the cars you've done with 272's?

I don't think anyone has apple to apple data on cams in general. I have not seen any cars that got dynoed before stock, then only changed cams and nothing else and got dynoed again.

Working on it back to back. I have a customer getting back from vacation, and his car has been at his local shop getting work done. Have a before dyno exactly as the car sits.

why not use kelford cams that ams developed for there turbo kits?
I can get the Tomei for half the price of the AMS cams. I'm not trying to be cheap, but I want value from every dollar spent.

See that's what I'm talking about! Nothing changed but the cams! Keep the tune the same at first and Dyno it! Excited for these results.

If your going to run big boost, enough to build the motor, then run BIG cams. Your moving on above stock turbos, consider a large lift, and overlap cam that still idles good enough for you.

That engine in-particular is very responsive, but it is high compression with my turbos. With alpha 10's they are responsive, but they dont make 20psi at 3000rpms.

I hope to have that car on the dyno shortly.

Kelfords are very good as are the HKS Cams. Hey I just like cams in these cars LOL.
Sorry to bump this thread from the depths of the archive but Bill did we ever get this comparison? I am finding all kinds of cam info and some is contradictory at best. Thanks

I have installed several sets of the 272s and they are great. the only spec difference between this and the Kelford C is the C is 276 right in the middle of the Tomei 272 and 280s

In this Japanese market everyone is stuck on standard,massed, produced camshafts. So unlucky for all.
