Ok, here is an update:
The cams aren't New or Used, they are re-manufactured (spelling)
KO called there provider, and he said that those "spots" are where they actually "grab" the cams with there instruments (something along those lines)
the guy promises that if ANYTHING goes wrong when I install the cams or later down the road because of that, he will cover everything.
Those spots should not and will not affect performance or engine wear going by what the guy said.
Now about the fact that KO told me these would be new...
They are going to give me a great deal on my next purchase from them. I told him I was leaning towards Eisenmann Racing exhaust, and the direct replacement coils (similar to the Plasma boosters). He said he will look into those, but he tried to talk me into getting an AA Exhaust.... I'll make a new thread on the new exhaust choice...
But so far my choices are:
A ) Keep the current cams and meet my deadlines and get discounts from KO
B ) Ship the cams back and get other cams.
As of right now, I am not sure, but since both KO and there provider tell me that if anyhting goes wrong they will cover it, does make me feel ok about these cams...
So I am somewhat leaning towards choice A...
| Ok, here is the deal, all cams , when you buy them from schrik are a regrind |
of an original cam, now an M3 cam out of a car I understand it is "used and
you were under the impression you were getting brand new cams, and Denon did
not tell me what condition the cams were in except for that they are in
Now I have sent those pictures to Denon and our rep at the BMW dealer, the
wear points you are showing are floating points where it not actually going
to touch any thing in the car, The cam will work just fine, the lobes have 0
damage and they do not change from being in a car before. I can get you
another set of cams in about another 8 business days but they will not be
any difference as far as performance or reliability, again a cam is a solid
piece of metal. So I can guaranty those cams if you want to put those it ,
or you can send them back and wait for another set. I do apologize for the
mix-up but I would like to help you and get your car running the way you
want it. Again I am willing to guaranty those cams in your car, meaning I
take the risk of improper installation as well. So let me know what you
would like to do.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to place an order, please
do not hesitate to email or call!
