    Default Tipo inlet cam

    This old chestnut again

    In searching for a replacement inlet cam for my 16vt I've come across a couple of possibilities - one being a couple of Tipo cams.

    Eper lists 2 different types, with 7697190 being the one to go for. Is this from a 3 door or 5 door? Looks like the 5dr one is the one to go for...??

    I read that, but nothing conclusive... I have found a 3dr cam and a 5dr cam, both from Tipo 16v's.... power seems different, unsure of the torque how different the curves are but what is different, the map? I just need to know which one to go for!

    THis site: http://www.tipo16v.co.uk/ lists the 5 door as having the more power (148 bhp vs 142 bhp)

    Hello,

    The 7697190 5dr is the one you want, it has the high lift profile. Before buying try to find someone who has fitted it and is happy with it....
    It takes power from the bottom end and then gives more at the top end, if this suits what you want then go for it. Read the FAQs or search through previous posts on the Evoforum,there is much said about it. Your ECU will need remapping.
    Don't forget to check the shim clearances this time.......

    I've found a couple lined up in scrappers to go and look at at the weekend, part no is no good till I get there, I wanted to know if it is 3 or 5dr I'm after. I guess 5dr as it lists the 5dr as having slightly more bhp. I thought with std exhaust cam the overlap isn't as aggressive, read it will lift by a few hundred rpm. The engine is in a track car, so driveability comes last. Fuelling is no problem I can map it myself.

    Yeah I'll check the clearances this time... when I've got a cam to check with

    The way I understand is that you have to put the standard inlet cam to the exhaust, and Tipo to inlet.
