Don't. Trust me on this, You'll be better off just buying the new bearing (a Timken or such from Rockauto) and getting it pressed in.

Well if you say so. Where could I get it pressed in at? Can any shop do it?

Any suspension/front end shop should have a press and be able to press out the old/press in the new.

Alright. Thanks for the help, I'll search around to see if there is one around or ask around.

Aye, both used knuckles i got for the swap had bearings that needed to be replaced. And then had to replace one of those again this past spring (cheap ebay bearing, got Timkens this time)
I wound up doing the second round myself with a bearing press kit from Harbor Freight. Replaced both the hub and bearing with the kit for less than the shops wanted for just the bearing.

Update for everyone. Got my wheel bearing replaced and alignment done. I have fully enjoyed the power gain from the cam, only thing I don't like about it is at low revs feels very sluggish until at 2.5. Other than that great mod for the extra kick.

That's the double-edged sword of mods like that. You're going to give up a bit but you'll gain more once you get it into its wheelhouse. Have you opened up the intake at all?

The problem with performance cams is the longer duration moves the powerband higher causing a loss of low end power.
However, the 1.8 cam has the exact same duration (232*) as the 2.0 cam. The difference is increased lift, which means more air throughout the powerband, which does not cause a loss of low end power.
When I researched the 1.8 cam before buying one, I read like 30+ threads on this and not a single person reported a loss of low end.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's either in your head, or your timing is too advanced, which will cause a loss of low end power.

Hate being out for some time, but I could check if it is advanced or not either that or I'm not getting of first at the proper rev. I'd have to see I'll update in a bit

Or that, and now that I remember, whenever I had launched once at 2.5 rpm it didn't drop nor did it feel slow, it just pulled until redline. It could probably be indecent driving habit and in my head.
