Well i just finished my road race turbo build and was doing some engine break in. Well on my way back to my apt i was sitting at the stop light ...turned green so i proceed like normal to go and i hear a click and my car turns off i try to start it and got nothing. Upon poping my hood i find the cam gear no where it should be. What the hell would cause this:





yes thats part of my compcams 95300 still in there.

what cam was it for the 2382394583249587613956132957billoith time


EDIT: i shoudl looked under the pic

do they come with a warranty
Oops, I failed too lol

Thats surprising. If you had said it was OBX or something I would have said that it was just a POS (Ive seen an OBX tear itself up before), but Im thinking maybe something caused this, like maybe you over torqued it like beaver said.

What was the complete rocker assembly and outer cam caps torqued to? How tight was your timing belt?

it was rubber from a previous timing belt setup...gates racing thats a different story

rocker arm assembly was torqued per helms manual camshaft bolt was hand tightened with my ~7inch long 12mm wrench
timingbelt tension was set per helms manual:3 theeth rotation then tighten tensioner

i have yet to do any further inspection on the head to see the story

i have had this camshaft for 2 years and it seems kinda odd that it failed now when everything torque wise is the same

the oil pump was in the lower boundries for clearences so i doubt it was an oiling issue. This literally happened at 2k rpms.

lack of oil to the cam journals will do that.
Ive seen this to some extent. Cam locked up and the timing belt didnt break, so the tensioner pulled out. We thought we had forgotten to torque the tensioner until we saw the cam.
The keyway on the cam gear was starting to twist as well.

I've seen on stock D15's doing this only it spun the center of the stock cam gear.

Try getting that one in time.......FML!

damn!!!!!!! that is what my crank key looks ATM FML looks like the cam got locked up and just snaped or something in the timing belt area jammed up and put a pulling motion (of sorts) on the belt then thrue cam gear causing the cam end to twist

if it broke from the material, the keyway wouldnt be like that.. something was too tight, and or oiling issue to the head..
