    Question kent cam

    hi all
    i was just wondering if anyone has fitted a kent cam to their 2.2 petrol vectra.
    i've found that kent cams list one, their part number ec2005, but would it work on the vectra c and what sort of bhp increase could you expect?
    thanks in advance for any replies

    Belive for the 2.2, your going to be looking at around £700!! Im sure ive read somewhere, you can expect a bhp increase of around 20 !?! Sounds quite good and would imagine it to be quite responsive then.

    Piper ones are regrinds so you send them your old cams or even a used set from ebay. The 2.2 guys dont use Kent cams only really Piper or Comp.

    Comp cams LINKY. Works out about £300 before shipping

    Piper cams LINKY. Again about £300 but no overseas shipping but you need to give them a set of cams.

    Your only looking at a 10 bhp increase with just cams mate. Also look where the power comes in on the Kent cams, 4000-8000. Your going to have to rev the nuts off it just to get the cams to come in. You really want to be looking at the Kent EC2001 cam. That brings the cam spec inline with the Piper cams but the piper are a proven product on the 2.2. Unless you want to spend some heavy money on balancing and raising the red line the cams your looking at are money down the drain IMO. And on that note, there's not really much point spending loads tuning a 2.2 in a Vec C as its just to heavy and you would need to spent thousands just to get and extra 30 bhp.

    If you want some really good info on the 2.2 mate pop over to z22se.co.uk. Just remember our cars are limited by the Can bus where the Astra, VX200 and Vec B aren't. By the way I take it you have a none direct?

    I wanted to put some piper cams in my 2.2 vec B but got disheartened with the HG failiure. I have to be honest, I was quite dissapointed with the power of the 2.2 engine when I got mine and suprised not much can be done to it really.

    I do have a soft spot for the supercharger kit for the 2.2 - I expect that to be a bit of a beast.
