    Adjustable Cam Gears???

    I have found some adjustable cam gears in USA which are designed for 1994-2004 Mitsi Galant 2.4L SOHC engine, they are 5 bolt camgears. They sell them seperately, but they say that for DOHC applications you can use 2 of them.

    Do you think that these cam gears would go onto/work on the 6A13TT engine?. And how many bolts are the factory cam gears?

    That engine is a 4 cylinder, so I would imagine you'd have big issues.

    You'd be better to contact www.rpw.com.au about getting a mivec 6a13tt conversion - if you're really keen. If you do get a price, can you post it here, I'd be interested.

    Why would I want to do a 6A13TT conversion when I already have a 6A13TT. These camgears that I found i want to know if they would go onto this engine.

    HI,
    I thought the 1994-2004 Mitsi Galant 2.4L SOHC engine was the 6A12 non turbo v6 with single overhead cams. (94 seems a bit early though for the v6?)
    I could be wrong, but if it is the case I would reckon there would be a good chance of these fitting, like you say it would depend on the bolt hole lining up.
    Updating Soon!! 1998 Legnum VR4, fully serviced every 4500 miles. Fully Amsoil'd. Falken 453's, EVO 8 FQ320 rear diff.

    The important word in Brad's sentence was Mivec.

    ttvrvr4, I meant putting mivec cams onto a 6a13tt from a 6a12 mivec (the engine in an fto)

    Louis, it is a 4 cylinder gdi engine, definately not a v6. The 6a12 is a 2.0 litre engine.

    I think I will just get a custom made set of cam gears for the 6A13TT. I am not interested in putting Mivec cams into it, I was thinking of getting the factory cams regrinded. I just thought that these camgears might be the same size as the 2.4L SOHC ones so if I brought 4 of them then I could put them onto the 6A13TT engine. Would any of that RPW stuff work on the 6A13TT engine,there isn't even a 6A13 engines in the list, only 6A12 FTO engines.
