A DYNO-PROVEN, QUALITY PRODUCT!
We design and grind Eagle Racing Camshafts in our own shop. Every Eagle Cam is produced from a new high quality Proferal Cast Iron Billet. Our profiles provide horsepower and revving ability while running moderate spring pressures. Choose your next camshaft from the biggest selection of 100% dyno and race tested cams in the VW industry.
THE RACING CAMSHAFT BILLET
Racing Camshaft Billets are cast from a special select grade of iron
alloy referred to as "Proferal". The lobes on the Racing Camshaft
Billets are much larger than those of stock or factory cams. Larger
cam lobes permit the use of lift, duration, and profile combinations
not possible on stock cams. Larger lobe sizes allow the camshaft
designer to utilize standard base circles and clearance ramps while
attaining profiles that produce high lift. All Eagle Camshafts are
ground on 100% new billets.
DESIGN OF THE MASTER CAM
The Master Cam is a solid piece of tool steel. It's outside radii reflects
the final shape of the cam lobe. This is the master that controls the
shape of the camshaft as it is ground by the grinding wheel. The
exact lobe design is the result of computer plotting, sample grinding,
dyno tests, and actual "on the road" usage.
We check every Eagle Camshaft to verify uniform and exact metal hardness. This is only one of the important checks made during the manufacturing process. The success or failure of a high performance camshaft is dependent on metallurgy and manufacturing precision.
THE STORM VULCAN CAM GRINDER
Precise, operator controlled, and consistent. The Storm Vulcan Cam Grinder is the perfect machine for VW camshafts. Master patterns can be quickly changed to allow the production of multiple part numbers. Special order, one off cams can be turned out with minimal set up.
We check each Eagle Camshaft to make certain that lobe centers specifications and overlap match the master cam design. Lobe contour, taper, and alignment are verified.
PARCO LUBRITE PROCESS
A non-metallic thermal coating is applied to every Eagle Camshaft. It assures a quick, no-scuff break-in of camshaft and lifters. The thermal coating remains on the camshaft for long range surface protection. The process adds fifteen minutes production time to each camshaft, but the results in performance and service life are well worth the extra cost.
CAMSHAFT TECH TALK
Need more information about camshaft selection? Try us! We're the only VW based company that actually designs, tests, and grinds VW camshafts. We have been doing it for almost 50 years! CB Performance is a full-line camshaft producer, not just a camshaft seller. We generate our own masters, dyno, and road test the performance prior to release of a new design. We then grind our own cams from 100% new racing billets. Our cams are fully heat treated using the patented Parkerizing process to reduce the danger of flattened lobes. Other brands are simply sprayed with graphite. If you need to know about lobe centers, lift, duration, smog, or turbo cams, give us a call. Nobody does VW aircooled cams like CB Performance!
Actual lift at the camshaft can be checked by first measuring the base circle of the camshaft. Then measure the distance from the center line of the heel to the center line of the nose. Subtract the base circle dimension from the heel to nose measurement and you will know exactly how much life you have at the cam.
Total valve lift is determined by multiplying actual lift by the ratio of the rocker arms. 40hp rocker are 1.1, 1500 and 1600 rockers are 1.1:1. A camshaft with .429" lift matched to a set of stock 1600 rockers will produce .472" lift at the valves. The same cam matched to 1.25:1 rockers will produce .536" lift.
