    Trying to put Romeo cams on a Windsor motor, is it possible? What parts do I need? Mid build and up against the wall on what to do.

    I don't see why you can't. I'm not 100% sure but I think the cam gears are different. As long as you have all the correct parts then it should fit fine. Think about it, you can install an aftermarket cam in either of those two engines...

    Only difference between the two is that the windsors have the cam gear pressed on.

    So Windsor gears should fit comp cams? Mine seem to have different diameters.

    You should just get a new timing gear seat. I'm not sure if the stock gears will bolt on.

    No, they are part of the cam. Cam gears from a romeo engine will work fine though. All the cam gears 92-98 01-09 are all the same on the 2v's. only 99-2000 had the pressed on cam gears.

    Got the spacers I needed,and one cam gear, ordered another.
    The bolts was the wrong size though. Got 2 arp bolts on eBay but it'll be a couple days for that though. Hope they are the right ones.

    Got my degree wheel today but still need my dial indicator to come in.

    I have heard that 110 is the best place to degree the cams to get the most power. read it in a post by NickmcKinney of mhs. What is your guys opinions on that subject.
