If I knew the exact reason why Hyundai has a problem with it's hydraulic valvetrain, I'm sure Hyundai would be willing to pay for the answer. I don't know why they tick. Apparently Hyundai doesn't either. This is why they gave up on the hydraulic valvetrain and went with solid lifters.

Like I said, nobody's being forced to take my advice. But, for the record, I guess I have if not the most powerful n.a. Tib in the 50 states, it's one of the top 3. Built by me, no credit card tuning here.

um just to let you know the xd cam wears your engine out quicker. the safe bet is to go with the 1.8L cam you can find out more info on rdtiburon.com. i have installed the 1.8L intake cam and the 1.8l ecu in my 2.0l tiburon and it works great. the reason they sell the xd cam on kspec is cuz in korea the can replace the engaines for cheap so they dont care about the wear.

The XD cam won't wear "the engine". If anything, it might wear the lifters. If that does happen, worst case is you're looking at replacing 8 lifters at a cost of about $12 each.

Ok I just read the three pages and I am trying to keep up here. I am ruling out touching my Exaust cam, but the intake cam is going to be on the menue if I am lucky. I have a timing belt coming up in a few thousand kms. I am thinking about the xd cam wich would be from a 97 Elantra. That would be able to give me the most NA power, I am thinking of turbo in the far future so the 1.8 Is also a though. What is the power difference between those cams for power? I wouldn't mind changing later to a more turbo oriented cam. What about the wear issues. I have read about them. But what is more often. I am in school to be a mechanic only afew months now so I am no pro but I don't mind a little maitenance. But how much is often? I already have lifter tick after extremly high load such as auto-x. Just looking for some advice on what would be best.

No. The 2.0L in the '01+ Elantra and '03+ Tib are solid lifter. The XD cam is a solid lifter cam.

Let me see hmm...XD/GT cam wearing out hydralic lifters? So what's the real thing? I was...WAS...going to buy the XD cam but with all this debate I don't know what to do...what about changing heads...? Swapping a Beta I head to a Beta II? Will it work? Does it have different sensors, vaccum lines, ports, is it just a direct bolt on? What do u think?

Hello to everyone.I own a Hyundai accent 1.3L, and I bought a 1.8L engine fron a Hyundai Lantra 1998, to put it on. I replaced everything inside the engine, and now I only need to put it all together. I lowered the valve cap by 0.3mm, and growed up the way to all valves, and now I want to adjust my OEM camshafts. Is there a different adjustment than the original, that will have better results?

Manos,
Greece

I have a xd camp installed in my beta I and i haven't seen any problems with using it escept for a burnt smell in teh beggining but its gone now. as for as increase ive had a noticable increase when i get around 2500-3000 rpms, otherwise its kind of a slow start

hmmmm, haven't been on hp for a while, mostly on rd. I got myself the xd cam for my rd1. Now I'm reading that the xd uses solid lifters while my head has hydraulic lifters. Whats going to happen with this setup?? Just a some noise and maybe some premature wear?? If thats all then that would be great.

Aren't the Cams Symetrical? Can one put an Exhaust cam on the intake side?
i was looking at it the other day and only need to cut the exhaut cam shorter install a stub for the cam sensor and change the timing mark to match the intake cam and you have a 240 intake ...
