The vendor section seems pretty slow these days. Let's try to get some attention in here. How many people are running Delta Cams and which engine?

1.

PROUD to say Im running a Delta Cam torque-grind cam in my BRAT's EA81! :headbang:

As soon as I can gather another complete EA81... the HP grind will be next :banana:

How do you like the torque grind vs stock? I am assuming it is similar to a chevy V8 tow truck grind...

I am thinking about my EA71 rebuild.

Thanks.

OK, One more question, what RPM do you guys run when you do a HP grind??? 7 or 8k? Will the regrinds hold up under the pressure of racing valve springs?

I have a hp 272/260 grind cam in my ea81t coupe.

I have built a couple ej25 sohc engines with the torque grind and rev grind and both are fantastic.

Previously but sold cars:

97 Ej22 and Vanagon 2.2 swaps with the cams. Loved both and stuck with mild grinds but no noticable difference in idle.

So I would assume that you can do cams for any Subaru engine? Even a 2.5 turbo?

Hey Robert,

How are things these days. Been way too long since we all got together. Any plans on coming to this side? Is the number the same?

What cam setup would you recommend using in a EJ22T block/EJ25 (phase II) head HYBRID motor? Is there a regrind?

(nothing wild - maybe 200-220 WHP)

Thank you. I will gather up the money. I will do that when I do my timing belt and water pump.
Will that give the car any lope? Also whats the gains from the 220 grind and rpm range too.
Thanks so much for your help.

It won't give it much of a lope. This is a torque style cam. We have a bigger HP cam but you will lose some of the low end torque.
