Try Webcam. They should have camshafts for less than $700.00.

A cam swap is not too difficult.

You are right about that. Wedcam does not show vvt cams available. My bad.

I assume you contacted Integral Cam? I here Integral has a quality product, but I have never done business with them. My next camshaft will come from them. They show 2002 and later camshafts available on their site.

Ya, I called integral a few days ago and they redirected me to someone else who gave me the same answers. "no cams for the vvt miata". I could send mine in to be redone for the price of new billets... **** THAT.

Do not be too apprehensive of sending in your cams or a spare set to be redone. All good cam manufacturers are capable of the procedure.

If a billet is not available for a particular cam, the cam manufacturer will reweld material back to your cam and then regrind to make higher lift and more duration. It adds some work on their end, so it is a task that is often more expensive than new cams. If they do it correctly, they can maintain the base circle which makes setting up the valvetrain less of a hassle.

Given the fact that you can't even comprehend a slight year listing and figure out for yourself that even if it says 02-05 but it says "for VVT engines"..knowing that ALL 01-05 1.8L are VVT and are all the same....God only knows how the conversation went when you called them

Get with the program...son.



Yeah, you might think I'm being an *******....but also remember that I am giving you the correct information.
