ok im lookin at corksport at the intake cams. i read the post on here that said the intake cams are a good mod for the money
now it says they are the cams from the FSZE 170hp j-spec engine but i have a regular old american I4. i guess im wondering are these cams for my car i mean is it a direct replacement or is there further modification required. anyhelp would be great im gettinf confused with all these kl03 klze fsze fs03 and whatever else there is can someone please tell me if i buy this can i just put it in my car or is there like cutting and boring and all kinda other mods to make them fit

thanks for the help

ok first the basics:

KL03- US v6 mx6 engine 164hp
KLZE- japanese v6 mx6 engine 200hp

FS01- US i4 mx6 engine 118hp
FSZE- japanese i4 mx6 engine 170hp

now:

the intake cam out of the FSZE is a direct replacement for the intake cam in the FS01 but has a different curve(forget exactly what its called) and result in more hp. the exhaust cam is identical in both engines so there would be no reason to switch them.

the camsaft swap is by no means impossible and has been done by at least a few people, however it is not as simple as putting on an i/h/e and does take knowledge of the internal combustion engine....

And you'll need a big hammer..... :D

Seriously though, this isn't THAT hard a project to undertake. It'll give you some decent gains I'm sure, and certainly will impress the hell out of the local kids in the Taco Bell parking lot who think they know cars because the bolted a giant aluminum wing to the back of their Jetta

another question relating will the klze fit in the KL03
Will the KLZE what fit into the KL03 what? If your car sports a KL03 you can swap the KLZE engine in; if thats the question. You can also interchange parts from the ZE since the Heads and IM flow better and the Cams a re more agressive. A lot of people swap in ZE cams and IMs.
