330 performance cams?..
 
Hi guys I've been reading zhp cams are worth it? Just wondering where you can buy them and for how much? Does anyone recommend any other performance cams? Ps I've baught a 330 engine to go in my 325 so it's out the car hence low labour on this job. Cheers

The tool for cam removal alone is $1400 US, so if you can find somebody to do this for you inexpensively I would jump on it. The cams are hollow and extremely delicate so they should not be removed without the proper tool.

If you do then you also need the software to go with it, another $300

Where sells them??

Zell 01-05-2013 05:32 PM

Straight from BMW, I guess. Tischer would be one source.

you can get them here. you might get it cheaper at a dealership that offers discounts over the pond.

It use to be cheaper, prices went up. For that cost a good set of Schrick cams might be worthwhile.

shricks are worth it. zhp's are a waste of time in my opinion

If you do the Schrick cams and also do software to increase your RPMs, sounds like you should secure your oil pump nut. It's a heck of a job, but you can replace a whole lot of hard-to-get-to parts in the process, such as the oil pan gasket.

i think he was just talking about the "zhp cams" vs. "Schrick cams". nothing about those with a 330 car and the optional package :tsk:

a bit overly defensive :impulss:

1400 I think not......The cams are hollow but delicate. I've changed mine and others no problem

Yup it's possible to do it without, you just have to be extraordinarily careful. There are YouTube videos on how to do it.

Personally I'd take my head out and bring it over to the dealership, pay them some money to use the tool to remove the cams. I dunno how much it'd cost but sometimes, they're super nice and will bring the tool out to you to use. Hey, worth a shot :P

Rumor has it that the tool is made by one guy in Germany.

didn't your mother tell you not to assume, it makes an ass of your self :P

Lol yes, precisely.

If you wear a clown costume, does that mean you're trying to look like a clown? I'd certainly think so.

Made by Alpina (supposedly). Lower duration (and probably lift) though. I'm pretty sure actual Alpina motors run more aggressive profiles

Back when you could get the performance cam kit for $500 or so, they were absolutely worth it. But at $900... I don't think so. I wouldn't spend $1200 on Schricks either though.

nike001 01-05-2013 09:43 PM

I've heard they're made by Alpina too but I have my doubts in that. Not sure why they'd go through all the developmental processes to make their own cams when they can just get some good ones off of Schrick.

I'd sooner believe that and that these cams are just 'used' be Alpina in their modding journeys.
