BMW Fitments: 3 Series
The Epic Motorsports E36 M3 Sport Camshaft set was created using state of the art design and engineering processes, resulting in a superior product that is suitable for both street and race engines alike. The high-lift profile opens the door to new levels of power – 15 Hp more than any other cam we have tested. This design very closely matches the Sunbelt E36 M3 cams which are no longer available.
Epic's carefully tuned lobe profile allows safe operation at revs over 7,400 RPM with stock valve train with a noticeable gain in high-end horsepower, allowing you to truly take advantage of this new RPM territory without sacrificing low-end torque. Note: We recommend 3.2L engines use alternate lightweight bottom-end components.
Cams are sold in pairs only and fit U.S.-spec 3.0L and 3.2L M50-based E36 M3/Z3 engines (1995-1999 M3, 1996-2000 Z3).
Epic Motorsports M50 Sport Spring Kit or High-Lift Race Spring Kit is recommended but not required.
