Is the Saturno cam for power at higher revs? Is the Norwest more for lower revs torque what's the "best" cam to use?
I think I would rather go for lower rev grunt than top end, but I expect they would not be a HUGE difference between them??

How hard is it to find a 500 Saturno head???
Good luck
If you will find 2 of them, please drop me a note at once giggle

ciao Joachim
Well..... now I have! I have in the past week bought TWO 500 Saturno heads!
One a few days ago to use on the 558 engine and last night another 500 head attached to a COMPLETE 500 Staurno engine! :)

I am a happy. I can now have a 558 engine in one Saturno with a 500 head and single carb and another Saturno (which was a 350) I will replace the engine with the standard 500 engine.

Just got to wait for them to come in from Japan now....
