    Help indentify camshaft - possible combination with stock exhaust camshaft

    Hello,
    Im from germany and I have bought two used heads with these camshafts



    They have a slightly highter lift that the stock (about 1-2millimeters).
    The owner told my they would be hardweld N/A Profile cams.
    Can somebody tell which cams I have?
    Unfortunatly one exhaustcam got damaged

    Is it possible to combine the two hardweld intake camshafts with the stock exhaustcamshafts? Is there enough space (the valves a 1millimeter oversize) so that the pistons does not hit the valves because of the highter lift?
    Thanks for you help!

    Can't say what the cams are but a good machine shop that does cams may be able to weld and and turn down the damaged cam.

    Since it has the word Web stamped in the end, There's a good chance it's a Web Cam regrind:

    Thanks for the reply.
    Has somebody a idea if I yould use the two intake Webcam cams with the stock exhaust cams?
    As the lift of the webcam cams is a bit higher, could those be regrid oder reweld?

    Hi,
    thanks for the reply. But I would like to know, if I could use the webcam NA Cams with the stock exhaust cam.

    Of course you can, however, at a guess, I'll say it wont work very good as your intake cam is allowing alot more air in....while your exhaust cam being stock, doesnt have the same duration so it wont be able to expel the same amount of air...

    That's how I see it anyway, anyone can correct me there, I'm not an expert!

    Hi,
    would you guess that it would be better to run the four stock cams rather than two webcam cam and to stock exhaustcams?
    Would there be a power loss in using the webcam cams with the stock cams?
    And is there a problem is running 3SX valve springs with the stock cam?

    1) I probably would. Just better in knowing what you have works as it's stock. I'd hunt down or fix the front ones before putting them in
    2) That I cannot answer so I'll leave it for someone else to field although it's a very weird setup so I dont know if you'll get a barage of answers...
    3) No problem at all! The kit is designed to cope with high RPM and high lift, having stock cams is no problems for these valve springs at all...

    Hi,
    I would get four used cams, each for 80€. But if I could use the Intake Wecamcams I would save 160€.
    Maybe someone can answer to this, maybe someone had even run such a setup.
