I've herd a lot about the 1.8 intake can giving a bump in power on the 2.0. I've read instructions on how the Install should be but it doesn't go in depth and I don't want to risk breaking anything or doing something wrong without a little extra guidance. Just really more details about the removal of the stock cam and what all to remove loosen etc.

Remove old, Install new. I would replace the valve cover gasket too.

Honestly that's what I thought it was, but I feel really skeptical about it because it sounds so easy. I remember going to a junk yard one day and saw an Elantra with the valve cover off, besides timing belt, I saw a chain connection both cams and whatever else held down the cam.

dont forget to immobilize the harmonic capacitor and turn the 4 flow control sensors to 17 degrees BTD.

if you have a missionary position sensor you MUST use assembly lube on old shaft!

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

I died laughing on the missionary position sensor and after.

Right before I start, would it be best to do this with premium gas in the tank? Or is regular alright?

It's pretty straightforward. Just make sure everything is put back into time.


Here are some pictures and tips:





Camshaft timing marks


There needs to be 5 chain links between the timing marks on the camshafts.


Use adjustable wrench the adjust camshaft timing.



Remember there are two rotations of the crankshaft for every one turn of the camshaft. So even if the crankshaft timing mark is in the correct position, it could be 180 degrees out of time. You will need to put the engine in top dead center. start by pulling the cylinder 1 spark plug. stick a long screwdriver into the spark plug hole to feel the position of the piston. Rotate crank by hand until cyl 1 is at the top of it's stroke.
(cylinder # 1 is the farthest from the transmission)



It's important that you rotate the engine by hand before you start the engine.


I did notice a bit more midrange power after the install.
i8acobra dyno tested before and after the 1.8 intake camshaft. He gained about 3-4 whp

You just saved me from giving myself a headache on what might have been the second easiest thing in my life

So I'm kinda stuck, I removed all the bolts from the valve cover, but when I try to pick it up it gets stuck as if it's being blocked. Why's that?

EDIT: Figured out why

but its like 4 lbs lighter than stock cam gear.
