      Sure.... Y21 cams make a nice mid-range improvement. Be aware the swap is a very time consuming and somewhat expensive job if youíre not taking the head off the car. The cam base circle is different abs therefore requires lashing the valves. Itís best done by a machine shop who cuts the valve stem tips, but you can also do it with new lash caps at about $3.50 each.

      I built a spreadsheet to calculate lash cap thickness that Iíll share if you decide to do the job in the car, but be aware the job is a hassle.

      I need to clarify..... the followers are very expensive new, so Iíve found a local dealer who will sell them used for $3.50 each. Measure used followers with a micrometer before using them, but Iíve had very good luck.
