    Tighe engineerin in qld do plenty.

    Give them a call, send them your cam and tell them what you want

    They should do one for prolly 400 odd... they do a pair of swift cams for 580 or so...

    I think Warwick said he used to have a turbo Volvo grind that went well with his worked head. Maybe ask him?

    Mate I said 'I think' as a disclaimer and then advised talking to W to clarify. I'm more than willing to admit I don't know everything.

    As its been said Tighe engineering, you will have to ask them what can be done and what cant, some cams can not be reground therefore have to use billets(spelling) which cost abit more.

    Default grindin'

    Last time i looked into the 205 cam grind (5yrs ago), some mob in Sydney quoted me $650 to have the grind done properly. This would involve grinding original down, building it up with Stellite weld then grinding to suitable profile.

    Not that I am claiming i know anything like everybody else, but might be worth keeping in mind as you are limited to what you can do by just performing a grind on a standard cam.

    I can recommend something, but you'll need 10:1 CR.

    The Wade Cam grind I got was unreal. 162B from memory.
    I had 10. something quite high, compression as well.
    I would get the head done while you are at it. I'll show you what to do if you want. Shame to be half assed about it. If you is gonna immobilise the car, hack into the head, guy and make the most of the grind!
    PM me if you want to do stuff.
