Cool. Give us the review after you've broken in the cams(if there's a break-in period required).

I heard another company is making their own cams.....closer to where I live. hmmmm....

I heard that same rumor--but that was months ago. Have you heard anything recently about that other company's cams?

I'm installing mine Saturday. Don't have a hydraulic press, but I'll make do.

(For those that haven't bought the cams or removed a timing belt, the belt tensioner is automatic and goes to full slack when the removed. You are supposed to use a hydraulic press to slowly compress it for reinstallation.)

Ralliespec has their cams coming very soon. I was there a couple weeks ago and they had just received their first set for testing. They said they will be available very very soon

I see there is a lot of anticipation about this review.
I'm really interested in hearing this as well. I'm scheduled to take my car in the 20th to get the cams installed. Hearing a review before hand would be really nice.

Cheers,
Marco.

Mine is a MY99 and Trey himself is going to do the job. I live in Dallas, so it makes no sense for me to have them installed elsewhere.
I see you're in Austin. Perhaps a trip to Cobb Tuning would be the best thing for you (if you're planning to buy the cams).

Cheers,
Marco

If he doesn't drive his car for an entire day straight...the cams can't be all that great. So, if he doesn't post...then you know what that means!
