I was at the junk yard yesterday and I found a d16z6 with non original looking cam so I grabbed it. Dizzy side code says E621. Looked up for about an hour yesterday and could not find a thing for this cam. Not sure if its aftermarket or an oem off another motor nothing

HI,

Keep in mind, not all the cams were manufactured in the same plan/location with the same process. I believe it is an OEM cam made in a cast blanket. However, it worth to measure it, maybe is a Y8 cam, which were made out of cast blankets.

Regards!

But there is nothing showing up under that code. No matter the casting method. It should show as an oem cam when the code is entered. And it does not. And y8 cams come engraved on the cam side with the cam code and say Dxxx on the dizzy side. This cam has no other engravements but the one. And the lob width on a y8 and z6 is actually thinner then this cam.

Baezk,

If you have access to Vernier Caliper, measure the lob lift, that might help to... If you have access to a degree wheel and a dial indicator that will disclose the lift and duration.

Regards!

I measured it and it appears to me smaller then even a stock cam ??
Base width for all 3 was ~1.3" all between 1.23-1.3 slightly diff.
Lobs were Vtec was 1.5". Pri/sec 1.4" exhaust 1.45".
