Hello everyone,

Do any of the sponsors or anybody else locally, carry cam degree bushings by any chance?

Sorry bro, they are bushings used to advance or retard the cam. The holes for the bolts on the cam sprocket are drilled out along with the hole for the dowel pin. The bushing needed is placed on the dowel pin which either advances or retards your cam timing depending on how you position the bushing.

These are what they look like.


Ok thanks guys I figured Yearwood would be the place if any.

If Yearwood don't have em, try Automotive Machine Services. Doug might have som!

The cam was off 4.5 degrees. Supposed to be installed ona 109 and when we degreed it, it came in at 113.5. When I went to pick up a set at Yearwood we started talking with Todd about it and he said it might hurt the performance of the motor as he already tuned it the way the cam is currently installed. It is in an LT1 I had in my camaro and we just decided to pull it apart and degree it to see where we were at but Todd recommended against changing it. What do ya think?

Thanks for the offer though!

Anytime you deviate from your cam card, all bet's are off, for instants, how much advance is ground into the cam, what LSA does it have, assemtrical cam lobes ?, Int. Closing, Exh. opening all affect where power is made, and this is only the tip of the iceberg, only the person degreeing your cam will have that type of infomation and know what to do with it, Todd is an excellent tuner and knows his way around the LT-1's, if you don't have piston to valve clearence issues, just do what Todd say's, he's the only one that know's what intake/exhaust valve timing events you now have. adding your intake centerline to your exhaust centerline and dividing by two will give you your LSA 'lobe seperation angle'

Thanks, Todd has done an amazing job with my car thus far and he sure does know his way around an LT1! Just thought I'd get your opinion also.
