    Interested in a KM cams M10/M30 rocker group buy?

    Hi,

    Couple people mentioned to me, that the KM cams High strength steel rocker group buy might be interesting for some of you guys as well. I though I might ask before I order.

    Hi everybody,

    after some research, I found a decent source in europe for High Strength steel rocker arms.
    I'm trying to see if there is any kind of interest in organizing a group purchase from KM cams in Norway?



    https://kmcams.com/collections/venti...el-rocker-arms

    They have been discussed plenty of times online, being successfully used even with the highest lift cams in M10 race engines.
    The normal price is 399€ for 12 and 299€ for 8, but they are willing to give a good discount if we get a couple people together.

    I have time following information so far:

    - they come with new hardened Eccentrics and bolts
    - they work with almost every cam on the market, the contact patch of the rocker is wider and allows better wear patterns on the cam
    - leverage ratio is the same as OEM
    - the have a specially heat treated pad (I'm still trying to verify what kind of process)
    - no special oil/wear in procedure necessary

    UPDATE:

    I got the prices from KM cams. They will be around $253 per set of 12, shipped to my place.
    So the set can be had for $260 shipped in the US.
    Anybody interested?


    The surface is gas nitrided.
    As it seems that the rocker is not being polished after Heat treat, I'm currently looking into CNC polishing them after I receive them in.
    KM cams has confirmed that this would not be necessary, but I do like to be on the safe side.
    I will try to place the order in the next couple of days.

    I also did weigh the factory ones. They are 73g a piece without hardware.
    After the last revision, the KM rockers are 101.6g, according to the 2002FAQ.

            I have been waiting for a couple responses from them lately.
            A set for M10s should be around $175 shipped in the US.

                          I missed it too.

                          I would have been in as well, contact info if you can, maybe we can stir up some more business.

                            You can get them through ppf http://server.pure-pf.com/webshop2/e...r-for-m30.html

                            I’m tossing up getting some for mine, but I think that will be stage 2 with a more aggressive lift cam

                              Anyone in this group buy have a spare set of rockers they'd be willing to part with? Looking for a set of 12.
