Manufacturer’s Pitch

TOMEI has released a wide range of camshafts for the 4G63 to suit various users’ needs. The PROCAM 280-11.5 is for the serious users who need results when every milli-second counts. These will deliver the added power and are made for increased performance from mid to high end RPM. Not for the faint hearted and will require professional setup and installation.

INFO

Stepping up from the 272 pack, the TOMEI 280 camshaft set offers an extremely high lift of 11.5mm and peak power at 8,400 RPM. Maximum horsepower checked in right above the 590 figure, resulting in a 30 percent increase over the factory cams. This set of high-duration, high-lift camshafts also induced a very lopey idle. From 5,000 to 8,500 RPM, the TOMEI 280s delivered a significant increase in power. Compared to the TOMEI 270s, these 280s trade low-end power below 5,000 RPM for peak power near redline. This set of Tomei camshafts requires upgraded valve springs.
