Default Identify my cam

I've been running this in my car for the last year, took it out to do some stuff and looking at the markings I'm not so sure this is the cam I thought it was.

11.35mm lift intake and exhaust





Slotted cam, no markings on the end.

What cam did you think it was? It’s not a factory grind, based on the lobes not having the thinner raised portion. Can you take a picture of the back where it’s slotted?

From that other KL racing cam thread...


Curious if anyone is running any of the KL Racing turbo camshafts. I noticed the company popping up in threads about people wanting 3" downpipes and/or intercoolers and noticed they also made camshafts. They seem reasonable at about $123 before shipping.

Specs below:
name/duration/lift/LSA

T2...280...11.30mm...112


Did you not see the KL and the 2 in the pic you took?

I did, but don't the KL cams have a smaller base circle? This one's 36mm, same as a stock cam.

I was told it's an IPD turbo, btw.

Crazy that there's no marking back there. Lame!

Yes, KL cams all have a smaller base circle, so this is not one. If you don't need to put it in the car, you can ship it to Shoestring to have it measured at some point and compare to other cams?

I'd be surprised if it was anything more exotic than an IPD Turbo cam. Doubt the markings on the blank mean anything.

I measured intake lift at TDC and got about 1.1mm. "Almost certainly IPD turbo" in the big ol chart of cam specs is listed as 1.0mm. Max lift figure is also the same. I still wanna know why it says KL on it though.

Ask the company that cast the cam cores? That's who put that on there.
