    Best place to Get Cams Reprofiled

    Right i have acquired a set of cams for my car and ideally i am wanting them reprofiled.

    Where is the best place to get this done about and is there anything i would need to do at the same time? Pulleys etc?

    Thanks again

    send them to piper mate, I live near piper and they did a fantastic and quick job on my 2.2 cams. as for other bits depends on what profile you run and what engine it is. check th epiper website and it should let you know all the details for what you want

    not lumpy, just a nice burble, I had already removed the pre-cat and added a remus cat back exhaust, and also a k+n panel filter with veccy intake pipe.
    Car ran as normal till you hit 4k and then you got a lovely burst of power.
    was a great mod and its still running fine after a year, my mate has brought the car off me and he loves it.

    What is the cost of a re-grind from Piper....? I would be interested to see the difference after fitting them Ross.... I know you will likley need a re-map at some point but I would get the manifold changed before you get it mapped

    Did you win that enlarged throttle that was on e-bay?

    don't forget to budget for new a new set followers too, if you want to do the job right.

    Piper charge about £210 for a Z22 cam regrind - I assume it will be similar for other engines
