Default 1.6 HKS 256 cams

Hey guys i have got some hks 256s from my 1.6 for sale here, they are used but as seen in the pics they are in good condition. They made 114.9whp on a dynojet with literally not one mod to the car accept removing the ac ps steering belt which was not a noticeable gain when i did it. From what i have seen they go for 400ish each new so 400obo for the set seems fair to me.

Either way you are saving like $200. Stop trolling and go jump off a bridge.

no degree no tuning nothing just stuck em in new timing belt and started it up. The lope was not noticeable by an average person, i could tell it was idling different because iv been driving the car for years but it is by no means a rough idle. it is actually very very smooth and i felt like the car ran smoother through mid range and top end for sure. They made daily driving more enjoyable, no loss of low end power and a blatantly obvious gain up above 4500rpms.

+1. I had a set on my first miata, and was very pleased with the performance. My cylinder head was stock. The only other parts I had was a full exhast upgrade, air filter, and adjustable cam gears.

Is there a benefit to running these on a turbo application?

my gain was 22rwhp on completely stock car, on a turbo car the gain should be significantly higher. the lsa is low and the duration is mild so they would make for a better turbo cam then n/a cam, not saying that they dont work good for n/a just that for an all out n/a cam there are better option. These cams are perfect for street cars that get driven on a daily basis where you dont want ridiculous 1200rpm idle and stuff. In short yes these cams would benefit a turboed car greatly.

that's a pretty good gain... did you do any tuning to get to those numbers? or was this a flat out... stock vs... putting two new cams in and dyno reading it again?

no tuning or degree i thought it was incredible as well since the car is literally stock minus an ac power steering belt and it made 114.9whp, ran pretty good.

i do believe these cams are perfect for turbo applications. i had a similar grind in my dsm and it reacted very well also. you would prolly see an even larger gain on a turbo carthen you would on an n/a car. even if it were the same gain a typical 1.6 with a turbo kit makes like 220? 240 is a big step up.
