    I’ve been talking to guys at Kelford and possibly going to set up another group buy for the “supercharged” cam profiles 1GR. These are made from blanks, not regrinds. Trying to figure out interest and quantities before I let them know. Send me a PM if interested. I don’t get on here every hour as I have a lot of employees and projects to keep up with but PM me and I’ll add you. I don’t know how long to let this run before I cut it off but I don’t want to wait too long as they have limited stock of the blanks and I don’t want to miss this time. Let me know thoughts.

    From Kelford: We have 1UZ (non VVTi and VVTi), 2GR-FE but no 2TR. Also valve spring kits for all those platforms

    prices: 3-5 sets 960, 5+sets 840 per set. I don’t have an idea for shipping yet but wanted to at least get that to you guys from Kelford. Waiting on a response from Kelford on the quad cam. Since we are having enough interest, I’m going to start honing in on a timeline to end this and figure out how to pay/get payment ship, etc

    thanks
    Christopher

    I bet that there would also be an interest from Aussie crowd. Since Kelford is in their backyard, and they have tons of 1GR owners.

    You're running kelfords on your turbo 1GR right? I could be interested if this isnt limited to supercharged profile cams.

    That is correct. I would order a less aggressive profile though. As in less lift. As that requires clearancing the head for the lobes to rotate. Creates a big mess.

    There may be the ability for the buy to maybe do two profiles. I can check with Kelford

    Any idea what the most lift we could run without needing to clearance the head more?

    That would be great. Thank you

    Updates? The Kelford rep got back to me yesterday and can do a couple profiles. Just trying to get an accurate number of people before I just order mine. Figure we could all save shipping

    So I'm still half interested. I'm Canadian so I don't know if he'll waive full shipping, which is about $152 usd. That might be similar to you US peeps since Kelford is based in New Zealand.

    Would there be any discount on the parts at all, especially if springs are purchased as well?

    I saw this but unsure.I saw feedback that cams plus cam gears had less outplut.

    Anyone have any metrics on gains with the Cam? Been tracking @White lightning boosted truck that likley has been botched due to his Cam install (likely install error but none the less)

    I got good numbers with the cams installed. Have the retard gears on them as well. +50wtq on dyno after, decent high end too. Although I did replace headers, exhaust at the same time so there are other factors in there.
