    I will be removing the head on my t660 c16 engine to fix the oil leak soon and thinking about changing cams to c18 . Just wondering about feedback who has them , will it be worth and beneficial for me . I don't do any heavy haul and max gross is 80 maybe 30% of the loads

    Why bother, you can get 750 out of an acert with just software......

    EverytHing i have always read about installing marine cams, the owners wish they either didnt do it or they revert back to old cam. You already have a c16. why get greedy nd run into potential issues when you are already working with boatloads of torque

    ...i was reading while ago that specially c16 with c18 cams will make nice low end torque ...compared to c15

    I swear I saw c15 on the post....oh well.

    I’d find the right person to tune that thing and leave the hard parts alone.

    If you idle for sleeping comfort ... you will not like the marine cam. It doesnt idle for #### even at 1000+ rpm.

    little more black smoke

    might get some flutter with stock flowing injectors.

    if you have facebook. Go to the group cat engine masters 3. Lots of good info, and people that can help you get the most out of that 7cz
     
    staceydude, Don379, pavrom and 2 others Thank this.
