Default Kelford 272 turbo grind (B6) cams for sale

Selling my Kelfords. they have prolly 20 miles on them. Im going to be selling my Miata and the cams are not in the car so i figured id let someone else try these bad boys out. Dont ask long story. These will fit the 1.6's.

$550 takes them. If you dont like the price, shoot me an offer. Keep in mind these take about 2 and a 1/2 months to get if you order them from kelford, and shipping is crazy. All info on the cams can be found here http://www.camshaftshop.com/home?pag...ategory_id=117

I have the cam spec sheet and all the paper work still in the box. PM if you interested. Ill put pics up tomorrow.

What the?! You selling the car complete or are you parting it out? If your parting it out I gotta snag that exhaust.

Sorry, I HAD to ask!

Drivability is highly over rated.

Drivability seemed decent when I got a ride in the car.... and that was when the fuel map still needed some work.

I would buy these but I dont have the supporting mods to utilize them to their full potential...valvetrain, headwork, rods/pistons, bigger turbo.

Drive ability wasnt too bad at all. Took a few log runs, but after 10 min or so, they ran the same as stock with the acception of a nasty idle. Wow no takers at all? Im shocked no one is interested in these bad boys. Ill put them on ebay if i dont sell them this week....

Well, it's not that people don't want them(becuase I sure as hell do), but I think what's shying people away is the fact that not many people runs cams as aggressive and these. Our B6 factory cams are pretty well sorted for boost and it seems that these Kelfords are intended for high-end range turbo's and cars with quite alot of headwork to support these and make them useful. Most street cars on our forum are making horsepower any where from 200-300 at the wheels and do it pretty easy on stock cams. For people like you and me who want atleast 400whp with decent spool, these are a must.

I will most definately be getting a set of cams when I install my hx40 but, that is gonna be down the road. Plus I want that sick, nasty idle

But seriously, I was totally going to pick these up for new my hotside build but, alas, college has taken my money from me.

I hope these go to good home.
