Our performance road camshaft kit is designed to increase performance in the mid to upper RPM range for all Mercedes with the M117 V8 engine, please let us know which engine variant you have when ordering.
The OEM camshaft is configured to be a compromise between idle smoothness, fuel efficiency and overall power band. This compromise is at the sacrifice of performance and gains are to be had in the higher rpm range from a performance camshaft. The stage one still idles fairly well and doesn’t loose a huge amount of low down torque, the stage 2 will idle slightly rougher, and gain more top end in exchange for some performance at the lower rpm range. Both camshafts are road going performance camshafts
These are chilled cast units CNC machined with profiles we’ve developed to create a bolt in kit achieving a large increase in lift and duration extracting maximum horsepower from the engine whilst keeping fitment simple, not requiring the use of upgraded valve springs.
The fuel and ignition will need reconfiguring to achieve the best from this setup, but gains are to be had without this. Custom, turbo specific and competition profiles are available for an additional fee.
We recommend all components that come into contact with the camshaft are replaced to prevent premature wear and we can offer to coat these parts and the camshafts with an additional low friction coating which improves surface hardness and reduces friction in the drivetrain through improving efficiency.
Complete competition kits with reworked heads, solid lifter conversions, double valve springs and titanium valve retainers are available for most applications. Please contact us with any specific requirements or if you’d like to talk specifications.
Our Mercedes camshaft range extends to most Mercedes engines. M100 (6.3 and 6.9), M102 8v, M102 16v, M103, M104, M111, M112, M113, M117, M119, and M272 are currently all available in various formats, cast, billet or reground if neither are available.
