    Product Description

    We've combined both camshaft and gear with all the pieces necessary for installation.

    This kit includes VX Performance Camshaft, IPD adjustable cam gear, cam seals, new cover gasket, and timing belt.

    The IPD VX cam is based on Volvo's original VX camshaft that appeared in the European B230FX engine.

    While this camshaft can be used with good results in both turbo and non-turbo applications, we recommend the VX camshaft for non-turbo models and recommend our Turbo Performance camshaft for turbo models.

    We recommend using the VX in Bosch LH-Jetronic or Regina fuel injected models.  It can also be used in 240 models with K-Jetronic fuel injections, but will idle rough (and may adversely affect idle emissions.)

    To provide you with the longest camshaft life, these are new Parkerized chill cast iron camshafts. We don't sell re-ground camshafts because the grinding process usually removes the outer hardened material and greatly reduces the life of the camshaft and valve shims, not to mention requires you to adjust valves more frequently.


    • Lift Intake: 11.37mm
    • Lift Exhaust: 10.65mm
    • Intake duration: 245.4°
    • Exhaust duration: 236.2°
    • Overlap degrees: 13.8°
