Sometimes my Cav sounds a bit diesely(?), I read somewhere that it could be the cam followers? PMC do a set for around £50. How good will these be?
I would also LOVE to get an uprated camshaft for my Cav, it is only a 1.8 single point injection so are there any places out there that would make one? The Cav has also covered 134k miles, would this be a problem? it is serviced regulary and well looked after! also what gains could I possibly get on the car if a camshaft is tracked down!
Camshafts tend to move the powerband rather than giving you an increase in power. On an engine with 132k, if its beginning to sound like a diesel then it might be worth taking it apart and cleaning all the bits and replacing worn ones.
Talk to Courtney about the Cam shaft if you are really interested and if you have the engine apart you might as well fit the new followers.
