How necessary for a mild performance rebuild is it to degree the cam? Is it worth the $89 from Summit for the kit? Also, does anyone know of any web sites that give a step-by-step?
hmm i might consider it just for the fact it ALSO includes a dial indicator. those suckers come in handy. will pay for it self the first time you swap gears.Brew said:The necessity actually depends on you. Are you willing to invest the time/effort to dial it in? Remember that you should thoroughly break the engine in before you do performance tuning.
Also, you stated it was a mild engine. Just how much are you going to gain by dialing it in? I am personally guessing not that much, not nearly as much as you would on an all-out high performance engine.
Me personally, I would concentrate on first breaking the engine in properly. Then I would tune the carb and timing. Lastly, I would spend the $89 to dial in the cam realizing it might gain me 5 HP at the most....to me a waste of $$
That's just my $.02
