Coltec stock camshafts for MG, Ford and Vauxhall engines and can supply for other makes. Our camshafts have been used for almost every type of racing engine, powering cars to success in international rallies. A regrinding and heat treatment service is available for all makes. The Tornado range is designed for upgrading the power of normal road engines and can usually replace the original without additional modifications. The Tornado Camshafts are available for most production car engines.

Please select engine type from menu bar above for technical data on camshafts to match your requirements. If required type not listed please contact Coltec for assistance.

* N.B. These figures relate to a 2.0 litre engine.
Power peaks and operating range will change with alternative capacities.

BHP / litre figures should be multiplied by engine capacity to arrive at feasible power targets;
i.e Type 4011C camshaft in a 2.1 litre engine would be:- 88*2.1 = 184.8 BHP.

N.B. Some profiles are not suitable for use with automatic gearboxes.
New followers must always be used. Valve timings and lifts, where shown, are for guidance only.
Use data sheet supplied with camshaft, together with standard timing marks.
HOLBAY TORNADO camshafts have no need for a vernier timing pulley.
