I have bought some stage 3 crowers and was wondering if i could put the exhaust came in the intake position and vice versa. that is just way too much exhaust duration
i really dont think it would suffer a whole lot.. but where is the cam timing sensor? will that effect things? does teh intake cam have a notch or something?

YOU WANT TO PUT THE INTAKE CAM IN THE EXHAUST AND THE EXHAUST CAM IN THE INTAKE?

please, immediately pack the cams back up, send em back and sell your car, get a trycicle and cut up your drivers license...u have no business even touching a car


May GOD be with you if you actually plan on installing these yourself...and i hope you got some springs and retainers, those cams are on the edge of needing new springs and retainers...

Will the cam position sensor affect anything? Yeah, just your engine, no biggie

Now, not being an a-hole. No you can't swap them. The intake cam has a chunk that the cam sensor reads. On top of that... you can't install them correctly using the cam alignment tool, they would be 180 degrees out.

As far as power it would not be beneficial at all. A rule of thumb I always heard is for the exhaust to flow 80% of what the intake flows. Switching the two would be the opposite.

The Springs and retainers are a VERY good idea with those cams. Also, the Crower site says that Stage III and above require grinding the head for lobe clearance. I have not installed stage IIIs but that could be an issue. The stage IIs come really close to not having enough room.

NO QUESTION IS STUPID when it comes to engine-works.
Everyone started somewhere below where they are now.
You LEARN by ASKING. No Harm, No Foul in Asking. Where's the Focal-Love people???

It might make NO sense to you, but in an on-line Forum, Curiosity killed nothing but Interest for a person trying to learn.
One point of note that Spankenstein posted is this:
"The Springs and retainers are a VERY good idea with those cams. Also, the Crower site says that Stage III and above require grinding the head for lobe clearance. I have not installed stage IIIs but that could be an issue. The stage IIs come really close to not having enough room."
No joke, I've read of serious cam-scarring due to improper head/valve prep.
DON'T reverse them, and dot your i's and cross your t's for best results.

BTW,
WOOOOFFFF!!!! (Oh, I mean... Bark!!!....
I'm not a big dog, just a nice guy w/ a little knowledge...
)

Artin, you're not winning any points on your thin ice w/ your lack of "Statesmanship".
I doubt you knew any different 2 years ago, if you even know now, aside from what others are saying...
Pardon my French, but unless you've got something CONSTRUCTIVE to say, STFU!!!!

O/T is a little different.
This fellow just had a Question.
CHILLLLLLL!!!!!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Ditto I agree, Naz and Artin
Guess you two "know-it-alls" knew everything when you 1st started working on cars.

MichaelXi, thank you so very much, I've been watching Artin for a while and he very seldom has anything constructive to say about anyone or anything

This is the stuff that is turning many from this board. We all started at the beginning at some point, without knowing the ins/outs of autos.

I, granted, make the occasional snide remark, however I do try to help most of the time. Cut Travis a break here. I agree it's an "interesting" inquiry but let's give hime information not "****tis" (no harm meant Naz).

Bottom line answer is No, it can't be done safely or without cost and consequence.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Hmm, he asked if the intake cam had a notch. MAYBE he means doing this himself, might he accidently put the exhaust cam where the intake goes. I don't think he meant to actually swap them intentionally....but how would you tell the intake from the exhaust cam? ...Maybe?...

Man, I've seen people be flat out penile heads on this board, but this is some of the worst I've seen.

I myself having NEVER cracked open the head of an engine had no idea what the answer to this question would be. My first gut reaction would be no, but how the hell is he supposed to know unless he asks?

I swear I hope this comes back on you guys, you ask a seemingly harmless question and have some pricks hand your ass to you on a platter! Not Cool

Artin STFU. One more negative post like that from you and you are getting another week off. I am sick of having to babysit you man. You are an adult now act like one and treat people with some goddamn respect.
