This should be everything you need, be sure to get the valve locks too.

Re: Dc 2.2 build question

Either a bad tune or dropped valve. Was running lean as **** when it blew and only 1000miles. I recommend Zerolift. Just a few miles from TPR over by the Fairfield Animal Hospital and Volkswagen.

Edit: to add to this, they took two weeks to do a camshaft build, two gauge install, and a few small things that realistically takes MAYBE 3 days. The tuner tuned my car in 5th gear (which I never heard of) and only managed to pull 221/157 with Go Power ksi cams that are known for 240+whp. I am currently running just bolt ons and pulling 217/173. He took 6-7 hrs to tune it. Average is 4 hrs.

If you have some general mechanical knowledge and your buddy knows the internal works on valvetrain and engine building, it really does seem like a good days worth job to do and fun. I plan on doing my own work next time. I just didn't last time because I was deployed and the intent was to have them do the work and the car ready to run by the time I came home for R&R. I sent my car to them at the beginning of August, came home September 4th, and the car was finally just getting worked on. I had to spend 12 days of my 15 days without a car.

4Piston is fantastic! And ERL Performance in Indy. Little bit of a drive but I think it would be worth it more than TPR and Slow Motion. I figured TPR would be good considering the high power turbo builds they have done. I don't understand how they botched a camshaft build so bad.

Im running Supertech 92lbs springs and titanium springs and retainers 7 degree keepers and Supertech valve seals with no issues and Tuned By VitViper from Vittuned.com. I wouldnt bother spending all that money on a dyno tune when Vit can Etune those DC 2.2 cams real close to a dynotune.
