i believe it all depends on whether your engine is a romeo or a windsor.

almost worth it to buy the sprocket kit just incase..

also other main concern is the angle or degree i guess. Bc i have no idea how to do that.. Hell im going to try to install them with out knowing what to do.. By following a guide =/

are you deaf? Do you have a windsor or romeo??


judging by your car domain pictures, you have a Romeo; you have bolt on cam gears.

You should have just asked what you had. That would have been simple enough. But you do have a romeo.

windsors are 99-Mid 01 so you had a possibility it was.

The cam covers and single bolt tensioner is what gives it a way.


happy camming

Factory cam gears are known for being up to 5* off. Does HiTech offer cam gears that are in spec with their cams? (I thought I remember reading they did.) Technically no, you don't have to degree your cams but I would consider it. Or at least get the their cam gears to.

You never know how far off the your cams will be if you try and install them straight up.
