i'v got a set of cams for a bmw 1.8L M42 engine, E30. they are 388 lift, and 264* duration. they are ground from the stock bmw cams, so they are not the OEM garbage thats out there from any other after market cam. the after market cams are softer and wear down quicker and have a higher chance of breaking. these camse are the stock cams, cast # is 1721194 l for the intake cam and 1721195g for the exhaust cam, i got 2 sets made, both from stock bmw cams, and i put one in my car, and im putting one up for sale. serrious offers only, pick up is available if you want to drive here and get them. i live in white rock B.C Canada. i believe it says that in my profile. and my phone number is (1-604)-837-3306 if you want to call me. my name is mike. buyer will pay for shipping, and you can choose who you wish to ship with. thanks. email me offers. i can also get other cams for those who are interested, i would have to check pricing, but email me if your interested.

Kowalski, I've got a 1989 325i and was considering getting a Shrick 274/274 11.5mm lift camshaft. What are the specs and price for a re-grind you can get for an M20 and also, why would a re-grind be better than a Shrick?

Thanks, I live in Coquitlam, BC..... Rick

you can give me a call, and regrinds would be better because the origninal bmw cams are made of a harder metal then the aftermarket cams, and therefore are a stronger cam and will not break or wear nearly as fast. if you brought me the cams id be able to have them back to you in 2 or 3 days reground call me if you want more info, and yes i do have a cam grind for you, its called a euro spec grind, and its a great wake up call for that engine, and it is computer compatible which means no mods to the computer need to be made

296 duration 410 lift, ifs called a euro grind if you want to look it up. and its the same for both the intake and exhaust. and price, well i havnt really looked into the cost of cams for that car, but if you want to make me a fair offer i think we gcan go with that make an offer or somthing like that alrighty? and it depends on wether or not you bring me your cam and i use that cam or if i have to go buy a cam, it will be cheaper if you bring your cam to me

Sounds good, I have a 1991 318is and i was looking into some BMP cams or some schrick ones. I have a Jim Conforti chip and i was wondering if i needed to get my chip reprogramed. I was also thinking about the BMP Multithrottle intake and MAF conversion w/split ratio tuning as well, know anything about those two parts? Are they any good? You said that they are streetable so does that mean they are 50 state legal? I live in california so I gotta know

well i live in canada, and we have pretty strick air cair in BC which is where i live, in white rock to be specific, and they're tried tested and proven to pass here, a few other guys arround here have the same set. and no you wont have to reprogram your chip they will work with the stock chip, i have a dinnan chip and it works great. im also thinking about the MAF conversion, and i havn't heard much about the multi throttle intake, how much are those running?

I forgot how much but you can look on www.bmpdesign.com A combination of those three would really wake up the m42 (cams,mti,maf). My mechanic has a 318is also and he has quite the list on his motor: Schrick cams,MAF,Multithrottle intake,Jim conforti chip, BMP plasma ignition, Borla exhaust and some other stuff. Those were the first parts he got and he says that his 318is is faster than his 325is! It must be that good, also the 318is is the lightest e30 besides the 318i so thats probably pretty quick.

gotta blow the B.S. horn!!!!!!!!

r u kidding??!!??! when you upgrade to performance cams, you DO need to reprogram the computer. not doing that is WASTING THE WHOLE POINT OF THE CAM!!!!
if ur gonna sling unguaranteed ground cams without credability.....
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!!!

you DO have to change the chip or the injectors won't push gas while the cam is open past the stock point....making the cam WORTHLESS. were they ground in a REPUTABLE SHOP or was in done with your friends......

you should really establish some creditability before you push UNPROVEN performance products without the knowledge to back it up.

most people here know better, and we look out for those who may not!!!

Mark

have a nice day.

actualy its done by a credible shop it just turns out that im friends with the owner. so i get a really good deal, im not sure i know anyone with enough money kicking arround to buy themselves a cam lathe to sit in their garage and grind cams for fun, my friend at colt cams designed the performance cams that crane cams puts in the ford focus. he phoned ford cause the cam they originaly put in the focus was smaller then the modle T cam and so then ford got a bunch of places to grind them a cam, and his won the contest, however for some reason crane took his profile and got the contract from ford to grind their cams for the focus. they stole his design but now he came out with a new one thats supposed to be even better. its called Colt Cams, and they are proven, i have a set in my car, i do have a new chip but you can run the engine stock with them and it WONT do damage, you will notice more of an improvment with a chip however. like i said before. im also currious why your attacking me? you think i would sell the cam's localy too if they didn't work? theres a guy who lives about 20 min away from me who is going to buy one for his 1989 325i in a week or so he just needs to figure out why its burning blue first. and yes this is a different cam, and yes new injectors would be good for both, but i dont have new injectors and it runs fine, also so do the other 3 bmw's that run with these cam's localy, and its been tested on the dyno, like all his cams before he puts them out to the public so he doesn't ruin his name. he also does other work, for heavey duty equipment, diesle trucks, VW's, chevy's, and fords. he wont put a cam out that doesnt work.
