Cspence came over and we got it running even smoother at idle. Haven't driven it yet. Still waiting on the injector situation. These low imp 1000cc are going to be a pain in the ***.

Its all metric since they are made in NZ. @ 1.00mm valve lift they are both 230 duration.

Only head work i have is super tech springs and ti retainers.

WonTon check out www.kelford.co.nz You wont be able to order from them direct, I had to go through Motion Lab Tuning in NC, and they had to go through Motovicity in CA, who is Kelfords US distributor. Motovicity sucks dick to deal with, they fucked up my order and made getting these things a 2 and a half month nightmare. Todd at Motion Lab is a hell of a guy and did pretty much all he could to get this transaction to go smoothly.

If anyone does want cams from Kelford, prepair to shell out all money up front, and be ready to wait a loooooooooong *** time.
