point of view by pablo deferrari
Now, I found a company that can very well make that engineering feat of eliminating the tensioner/chain combo and spin both cams with the timing belt. Pfiefer Industries in Naperville, IL specializes in this sort of challenge, and it seems that these guys aren't messing around...so they claim.
Any firm that can master this sort of engineering is worth considering...as long as that's exactly what you want. You see, I don't like messing about with what Porsche worked so hard to perfect. I don't have to remind you of the rigorous testing and utter punishment each car must withstand before it ends up in your hands. So when a company offers a different approach, or modification, to an already perfected design, I tend to avoid it like the clap because I know I may just be at risk of ruining this engineering masterpiece and maybe give the car some bad juju.
See for yourself...I'd love to find out how this design performs, my curiousity is piqued.
