Need advice: Camshaft recommendation for 2.0 1974 GTV with Spica injection


I'm having my 2.0 engine rebuilt for my 1974 GTV and would like advice/recommendation regarding a camshaft upgrade.

This is a STREET car and not a race or track day car. I would like to enhance performance on the street yet maintain driveability.

I plan to keep the Spica fuel injection system but have an expert rebuild and tune to match new cam.

Please advise on your experience.

Thank you.

If you will send me an email I will send you full profile info of my cams designed for high torque and improved HP on Fuel injected engines.

I have designs including VVT applications with modified mechanical (VVT) units that advance at 2500-2750 RPM that can provide seamless torque /HP improvement from 1500 RPM through Redline or higher, depending on fuel availability from your FI system.

I have Shankle 7L cams for In/Ex on my '74 2.0

They are nice down low in traffic and also give the car extra wind up high. Shankle is around no longer but you should be able to find a used pair or see if Alfa Ricambi has a set, as they bought Shankle's stock. Should be relatively inexpensive too.

Alfa Euro "105.48" cams are old-tech and mild, but an easy, cheap upgrade compared to 105.20 or other US cams, that makes the car stronger everywhere by maybe 5%. Doesn't change its character, and works great with Spica.
