Unhappy Fiat Tipo 1.8 Camshaft

Hi everybody, i'm new on this forum, and i have a question, and i hope you can help me....
I know a little about cars, and i own '91. Tipo 1.8ie 16V 100KW....
Anyway, i had my old camshafts replaced with new ones from Tipo 2.0.
Now, i have a feeling, my poor Tipo doesn't go as fast, as earlier....
Can this be a reason, are these camshafts same, or am i just having sence failiure?
I changed it becouse i couldn't find the right ones in Belgrade....and i didn't want to go anywhere else....

Please Help, I need to know.....

Re: Fiat Tipo 1.8 Camshaft

Having changed the camshaft, wouldn't you need to check the valve clearances?

Well, I suppose they did it in the service...
When I asked them if the camshafts from Tipo 2.0 fit, they said that they didn't know

As a matter of fact, I even think that guys from the service had some troubles setting up the ECU, if the electronics from the co-drivers place is called that way, after replacing camshafts. Even changed, now I have troubles keeping my engine running when it's cold, and it lasts until it gains at least minimal heat from working (at least a minute from the starting it)...

So much for the knowlege of Serbian authorized FIAT service....
Damn you Belgrade....
