Folvo cam timing
#21

I ran the numbers for the cam events I found on turbobricks and got 110 intake and 115 exhaust. Given that these numbers are likely for a NA engine do you think that Wes's numbers would be a superior starting point? Thanks

I don't think it makes a whollotta difference, Dennis......it's just a starting point and the two sets of numbers (Wes's & TurboBricks') are virtually identical.  <shrug>

I did an initial cam degreeing exercise today. It was without the lifters in place so I couldn't crash the valves by accident. I learned that with #1 at TDC both cam dowels up is close enough to assemble without crashing. In that initial condition #1 is at the top of the power stroke. I had to move the belt over one tooth on the exhaust to get the right spot.
I'll do a final adjustment after everything is together with sealant and the lifters.

Please report back with your initial impressions when you get it on the road, Dennis!  <thumbup>

NA verses turbo doesn't really consistantly affect this more than anything else. They also happen to be almost identical to what I suggested anyway. You can start the exhaust a little more advanced if you want, but I wouldn't sweat 2 degrees when you really need to just get it running a sweep it on dyno.
