Hey Guys,

Now that I have my new Stage II Cam kit in hand I was thinking about purchasing the Hotcams new 10mm Shim Kit P/N HCSHIM23 and was wondering if anyone has had any experiance with these shims? I have searched the forum and see nothing about the kit but given the wide range of shims (Includes three valve shims of each size from 1.85 to 3.20 in .05 mm increments. 84 shims in total) it seems like a nice kit to get things started.

Okay, thanks Ken, so it sounds like this kit may not have the granularity that may be needed.

Lot of shims how expensive is it? Do you know if they as hard as hd shims?
I have found them as low as $53 per kit but seem to average around $65.

hd originally was going with .05mm increment on the shims and later added the between shims.. that is basically .002 in ... most likely could get the proper clearances with those shims..

I use Hot Cams shim kits they are nice lets remember that .05mm = .0019. That is one thousand and 9 ten-thousands of a inch. If you can shim a head and accurately measure .0019 difference then you are better then a tool and die maker. HA Buy the kit it is well worth it.
