Comp Cams 163-201-5 Extreme 4x4

Post by sink1978 » December 14th, 2020, 5:46 pm


I’m hoping for some advice. I have a 2001 wrangler. It only has about 80k miles but I have a couple of collapsed lifters. I’m thinking of replacing the cam when replacing the lifters. Below are the specs on the cam. I like that I can run stock springs and it plays well with the ecu. Does anyone have any experience with it? I’m not expecting huge things from it but just to be better than stock.

Looks like a nice upgrade over the stock cam.

I am looking at the same cam. How did it work for you?

Good upgrade choice for late 4.0’s that wanna retain the late thrust plate style camshaft thats going to keep a stock spec valve spring.
Another benefit is the nitride heat treat option is included.

I’ve sold a lot of these cams including the 163-301-5 that is a good choice with an upgraded valve spring.

I also offer this package with an upgraded lifter.
Feel free to hit me up.
