I was wondering if anyone knew where to get some cams for the XT6. Or if anyone has any extra just lying around.

Thanks

I hear delta cams has quick turnaround and they do good work.I guess you just need to figure what rpm range you would like to have most of your power.

I want my power in the high RPM like 5 and above. If I want my power in the high rpms will my lower rpms suffer a loss.

Yes, if your peak power is that high it will be a bear on the street, low end torque will be reduced quite a bit.

How long did it take you? I want to get an estimate so I can see what it would cost to have my suby mechanic do it.

Qman's XT6 has some, even has the custom decals to prove it.

Having ridden in the the car, but never driven it, I will say this. Luggy down low? not really at all. Pulls like a scalded dog about 3000 or so, HELL YES. His problem was finding a clutch that didn't slip like a mother up high. Still does it after getting a fancy dancy clutch... Seems like you can't get a higher sprung pressure plate.

i have a delta cam set on my XT6 as well. (i posted at www.xt6.net so you can read/ask more there if you'd like). i have the very aggressive set, i have the numbers posted over at xt6.net as well, compared to the mild grind.

the engine was out, so it took 5 mins per side.

in car I'd expect to pay about 4~6 hours worth of labor.

Tex: I can get a clutch that will hold 320+ tq at the crank....$200+shipping for a NEW plate, disc, and bearing set. 25% stiffer plate, and a disc that by its self will hold alot more power than stock.

I've no luck with Deltacams as far as power goes. Very little gain up high, noticable loss down low (even more so than the gains up high).

Top speed will be increased slightly in 1/4 mile. Throttle response will seem somewhat laggy or slower take-off in general.
