Camshaft change 3.9 V8 95 D90
Recently, I have read several articles on the Rover V8 cam and how it is a mild grind and of weak construction that, as one article read, wears down into particulate that ends up embeded in the bearings causing bearing issues. Anyway, I am interested in getting more perfomance (a little anyway) by changing the camshaft out. Crane offers several, and I am seriously considering thier 2nd "performance" camshaft. If memory serves me correctly, it is 268/274 (int/ex) at 0 lift duration. The "reccomended" rpm range is 1800 to 4800. I figured this would provide a small bump in torque and I have been very pleased with Crane Cam's products I have used in several other vehicles. Any one with any experience with rover cam changes and specifically this camshaft? Any suggestion, guidance or hysterical observations are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
