diamante cams

I remember a long time ago someone saying to use diamante cams on our 3.0 motors. There is one at the junkyard its a 94 and the valve covers look the same. Can someone tell me if these will fit and what improvement there is? thanks.

Re: diamante cams

They are *supposed* to be a bit more aggressive than the Chrysler cams, however there's no specs out there that I know of. Also keep in mind that the Diamante engines were 10:1 compression.

Re: diamante cams

I have a set of Crower E27829 cams for a Chrysler 3.0. I don't know how these compare to the Diamante cams, but I can tell you these are like a stage 1 upgrade to the stock Chrysler 3.0 cams. For the specific information just go to the Crower website and enter E27829 into the cam card lookup. I was running them in my 91 Daytona with no issues on the stock ECU. However, for maximum performance I upgraded the stock fuel injectors to 24 lb/hr injectors which was overkill and degreed the cams to 114 versus 106 as directed by Crower with a custom set of adjustable cam sprockets I had made. Also, I should mention that in this set up I had Ed Kelly ported heads, ported runners, ported plenum with a 58mm ported throttle body 18 degree advanced timing with 89 octane gas. I only took the cams out to get more aggressive when I started the stage 2 build. Just let me know if you are interested in them. $75 + actual shipping to your location. The cams have approximately 25K miles on them and are in the Crower box sitting on the shelf ready to go as soon as you want.

Thanks,

Jason

Re: diamante cams

When I installed them in my 3.0 I noticed a slight improvement in mid-high rpm power.
In all honesty though, unless you have to pull the heads for some reason, I feel you can get more gains from doing simple work on the intake. Porting the plenum, making spacers, bigger tb, etc all net noticeable gains and do not require major engine tear down.
