Is anyone using, or has used, the Delta 282 in thier Y7? We have a major modified Y7, and feel this cam would be a perfect upgrade. However, I haven't heard much feedback about this cam, and have no specs to try on my dyno software.

We are currently running the 272 grind, and having very good luck with it. No problems with using a regrind as long as it, or any cam, is used in the right application, broken in properly, and set to spec.

Is this the place you guys get your grinds? http://www.deltacam.com/ I called them and they said they don't have any grinds for the d16y8. Where else could I go to get a regrind?
Contact Laurie @ Web Cams

http://www.webcamshafts.com/

But gonna be just as cheap as getting a Stage 2 cam off ebay, about $225.

You dont have to unless you plan on reving past your stock rev limit, I would get new springs though, just to be on the safe side.

272 cam is good to make overall power, nice lumpy idle, and you can run it with stock valve spring, but bumping compression will help a lot. 282 is overkill, this cam is nice with 11:1 cr, carb setup and full race engine... on street you need a lot of coponents to see difference with 272 and driveability is so so... 272 is nice on street, nice gain and driveability is good too. I put it in team with cam gear, and I've found the best setting at 0. No need of cam gear, this cam is develpped/grinded well with y7 spec for mild setup without cam gear...

I made comparison when I bought my new Z6 head, and stock intake port are 3/16'' EACH side taller and larger than y7 head... better to make power. I will sell my y7 head almost brand new (20 000k on it and new 272 cam, freshly milled and painted)....

I really don't say that y7 head is a shit, but if you don't want to port it decently in big building n/a setup or turbocharge it, hard to make real power without.

Are you serious ? paid for a block and never get it ?? Nothing to do against that kind of store/speed shop ?

Like many speed shop here, there is so much corruption with these guys, they don't have time to fuck with us, they have more important to do where is the $$$ is.

This maybe an old thread, but EXOSPEED seems to be in business again after a few replies from Wil and Daniel concernin a SR909 grind.
I was going to send my cam over to them...see pics.

What do you guys think? SR909 EXOSPEED or 272 grind with Deltacam?
