    Piper Cams in a Saab Lk9

    I have a quick question.

    We're abouit to install some new cams in my Saab (256 Piper cams)
    "http://www.pipercams.co.uk/pipercams/www/product.php?pid=ECOBP270H"

    Do these need anything done with the top or anything to make them work properly?
    Anyone tried this?

    Hope for a quick answer. Got some info somewhere about needting to lift the top 1mm compared to some hyrdraulic "things".. Sorry I cant be more specific. My tuner's english is not very good, and my engine knowledge is not all that great either..

    Thanks a head of time!!

    If you want to do it right test the springs for pressures at (valve) open/closed heights, and just measure everything in general to check for abnormalities.

    Nothing is difficult; some things just take more time.
