Yes, Texas. Took 2 days to receive the cams once they were shipped from Belgium. Total turn around time of 2 weeks after I placed the order.

I use CatCams too - made from billet. We have our own profiles made to order but they certainly know their stuff over there.

Delta Camshaft in Washington is who I use. Great prices, good guys.

$1000 for a set of KL welded cams to my spec.

I run their 272 grind in my daily driver. About $100.

I think I have heard of 1.6 offerings so it shouldn't be a stretch to do a 1.8. I'll have to inquire.

Even if not... last time I got a quote, it was $50 to measure or set up your specs, $100 a stick to grind. Come up with your own specs, you're talking $300 total.

I want to do cams as well. With the MSM engine, I do believe they come with the solid lifters, no? So, aggressive cams it is! No?

All NBs have solid lifters. Shim-over.

Exactly, it's garbage. I git pissed when I took apart my engine. Why wouldn't they do that?!
But, so you have shim-under with your 272? I thought you had to upgrade, or is it that you have to have solid lifters?

Well ****.. we should talk Vlad into testing it out since he should be fairly good at taking out his valve train?

Why would they? The MSM uses the same exhaust cam as every other BP4W/BP6D, and the intake cam isn't significantly more aggressive than any other BP4W cam.

Mazdaspeed and Mazdacomp aren't the same thing.

I thought they were sold as "Mazdaspeed" not comp.
BUT, to run 272 it's suggested to run shim-under correct? Or we can ask Mazda what they did to build the turbo dragster.
