ok, im looking at rebuilding my 1.3L. that being said what is the benefit (if any) of upgrading my cam? is it needed? if i plan on having it bored to 0.40 and hopefully get all the right parts (in the rebuild kit) would going with something like this cam give me any better performance? yeah i know 1.3L? performance? im just looking at doing the cheapest upgrade i can afford. limited knowledge and tools dictate a affordable and "easier" rebuild. any suggestions are welcomed. also have in mind that i have NEVER rebuilt an engine. so i plan on going REAL slow and steady.
thanks guys and gals

Not to speak for everyone but I've never had any good luck w/aftermarket cams. Port n polish that head and buy you a header. bigok

I just rebuilt my 1.3 (std bore) this past fall and threw a hawk torquer cam in there. It depends on what you want to do w/ your zuk. The cam is out of the ban between 3-4000 rpm. It definitely pulls better in the lower rpms than the stock cam. Hope this helps.

you can always call. I spoke w/ the owner (Rick?) and he's super cool and more importantly, he knows his stuff.

These are good people to deal with. www.deltacam.com I think they do all the cams for everyone except isky.It's only like $56.00 for a regrind with a 3 day turn around.Dont be afraid a cam change is always a good thing.bigok

arent all cams ground/ milled from one piece of metal???? i would imagine with the centrifical forces applied to the cam that anything else would just fail? could be wrong.... thanks hillbilly for the lead. i want cost friendly aprts not sacrificing quality. does that make sense?

does that make sense?
Yes it does.Most cams are ground from a cast blank others are ground from a forged blank.The only billet cams we ever used were for VERY high rpm eng's.Only rollers.Delta does a very nice job on their cams.And why pay someone to middle man the price up bye 50%?bigok
