  • Warrior cams in roadstar

    I've been told that the 1700 warrior has a bigger cam than our roadstars. Also that the motors are exactly the same except for fuel Injection and cams. For a performance upgrade has anyone put warrior cams in a roadstar? Thinking this may be cheaper than Pacific coast star option, if it's even possible.

    Someone did it a few years back. Had to do some relief cutting with a Dremel to the cases in the cam chest, I believe.

      try to find the actual lift and duration of stock roadie and stock warrior cams. I did a quick search and didn't find much. Are the 1600 and 1700 cams the same?

        As far as I know the only difference between the 1600 and 1700 is piston size

          The heads are different also. Look at them both from the right side and you'll see.

        I know nothing about these motors, but I’m inclined to think that if the 04 1700 was where the svs started they must have changed something. At least the valve guides maybe or valves?

          They heads, rocker box, valve cover, etc., are definitely different.

              If you listen to a 1600 & 1700. Side by side you can definitely tell they have different cams
              You have to be odd if you are number one

                There was a considerable re-engineering of the 1600 to come out with the 1700 in '04. It's clearly more than cosmetic, as some things are visibly different. Just what it took for them to comfortably raise the RPM limiter from 4,250 RPM to 4,750, says that they rethought cams and valve springs, and not merely the ignition controller programming. The HP and torque numbers tell us it was worth the effort!

                      The 1700 CDI box on a 1600 makes a hell of a difference for only 00 RPM's.
