hey ben, yeah i blacked out. full supertech valve train double spring 182-C Camshaft Set - Nissan RB26DETT - Kelford Cams i dont think i need to grind the casting for these cams but forsure reshim obviously. i was thinking about what you said no point in going for a mild cam mise well stay stock cam at that point, or go the whole nine yards. so i said fak it and just did it man. the cams i got are the ones i posted 272/272 10mm lift. i did this all not so much as to make my head rev all crazy and make crazy power, but more as a refreshment and a increase in seat pressure for my boost. the kit was a great price and seemed like a no brainer. 1400canadain.  hks camshafts in bin. just kidding will try to sell them. i am just a stupid canadian but i feel like my engine will be a good setup in the end for a descent budget. cheers mate thanks again glad you pushed me to kelford great service too they were nice to me.

No, you absolutely will need to machine / grind out the area where the lobes are in the head. Not a big deal really, but they will hit without modification. My Camtechs we trial fitted in the white 32 hit with 9.7mm of lift, and they stated their max drop in was 9.5mm.

You'll see what I mean when you try and rotate them when they're bolted in. Kelfords themselves even say only their L182 version cams at 8.7mm are the only bolt in, no modification.

Good stuff still 👍

1.3 head restrictor

Feel free to ignore, but I personally would go smaller if your motor will be sat high in the RPM all the time.

I was running a N1 pump, with Spool billet gears on my RB25 NEO and it would fill the cam covers, spit out into the catch can and also drain the 6.5Ln ASR baffled sump around high G corners at the track.

Killed my motor after 2x track days.

Agree with Dose pipe 100%. I used to run a 1.5mm Tomei on the first busted 2.8 but changed to a Nitto 1.1mm on current block. I think Nitto goes even smaller to 0.9mm now ?

Was weighing out my rods this morning at the shop and found something that raised my attention....I am wpc treating the rods so I don’t think it’s a huge deal. But I’m a newb so to the knowledgeable mates wouldn’t mind your 2 or 3 cents, even 4 cents if I’m lucky haha, Cheers. I’m either binning the whole set of rods or running the ones I got not messing around with ordering a single.  The last photo is what all the other rods look like on both sides. Fakin pissed about this but may be no issue.

Get that rod crack tested !

If that's a crack your stuffed if its a fault in the forging/casting of the rod, it may be ok . . . . .

However if the rods faulty in any way it will lunch your engine !

You've gotta ask yourself are you feeling lucky ?

Cause I don't remember if you've got 5 or 6 good rods or six . . . . 

So are you felling lucky ?

its definitely not a crack but more or less a scuff on the outside as if you were removing a bit of material to balance them. i know weakness in surface of any metal is like a crack in a window keeps getting worse then fails. but it seems to be a very small surface scuff and i think the wpc treatment will take care of it. research the wpc treatment if you are unfamiliar. the discolouring line from the small scuff is from wat ever scuffed the rod its not a crack just may look like that in picture. i think it just lightly touched something when being packaged.
