Colombo & Bariani - Any good deals?

Right,

I think I'm gonna go for a C&B 268. Trouble is they're £275 delivered!

Is there anywhere that does them cheaper than Gazzela?

Or is there another (proven) fast road grind as good?

IIRC OldSchool reprofiles Punto 75 cams for 140~150£ You can pick a P75 cam up for 20£ or so from a scrappy.

You need to know someone on the Inside to get one much cheaper Perry

But even then there is no guarentees sorry.

You can try reprofiling a 75 or keep your eyes out on ebay etc for a C&B or a Novitec but they are suprisingly rare, also check the punto forums you might come across one on there

Re: Colombo & Bariani - Any good deals?

Always have to reprofiling a cam from a punto 75 ? We can´t take a cam from a 75 and put it on a Cinquecento? From none of the Fiats we can do that and gain some "power"?

Sorry for the questions, just learning

The 75 cam offers some advantages. If you want more, it's either reprofile a 75 cam or go to a billet one (expensive). AFAIK, the 75 is the only other Fiat cam that'll fit the 8 valve FIRE.

So, what you say is that I can get a original punto 75 cam and straight away putit on my engine that will give me some advantage? Better if I replofile it?

Yes and yes. You'll need to check the shimming, but with a straight 75 swap you'll probably get away without changing the shims. Note that CC's Fluffy the Impaler is doing good deals on cams.

Re: Colombo & Bariani - Any good deals?

I have just stumbled on this and thought it might be an alternative, I have no background on them but the prices don't seem too bad

Re: Colombo & Bariani - Any good deals?

I had some correspondence with them a while back and they were up front enough to say they didn't want to get involved with that kind of engine development. Which in my eyes is a good thing, they know where there limits are.

Re: Colombo & Bariani - Any good deals?

I have done a bit of digging around and it seems these guys do good quality work, so it is quite suprising that the cams are quite a good price.

I don't know of anyone who has had any of their parts or motors but there is one of there engines in the auction watch
