1.4L/1.6L VX Camshaft Pair, Mechanical Profiles for Distributorless Engines


The SBD278 and SBD269 camshaft pair have been designed to give the widest possible power band & although the duration appears to be shorter than the hydraulic profiles, they have a bigger opening area from 1mm lift onwards. Power band 2500 – 8500 RPM. Ideal choice for rally/race.

Please note that these camshafts are ground to order and will take approximately 5 working days, please ensure you have ordered the correct components as they are non-returnable. 

All SBD camshafts have been designed in conjunction with Kent Cams and extensively tested on the dynamometer.

*Power gains can only be achieved provided your engine has the components to complement it. E.g. exhaust manifold & system, induction system & cylinder head porting where required. If you look at our upgrade kits they will give you more help.

Please see the instruction sheets for information regarding the camshafts, their installation & running in.
