Schrick 268 Sport Camshaft Set - E39 M5, Z8 (S62)
Sport camshafts for the S62 to shift the power curve higher in the RPM range
These Schrick sport camshafts for the S62 engine in the E39 M5 and Z8 Roadster make a dramatic impact on top end performance. The more aggressive profile of these cams allow better flow through the cylinder heads at higher RPM. Where the stock engine starts to lose power over 4,000 RPM these cams shift the power band higher with more power available up top. There is a slight loss in low-end torque but this won't be an issue if you want to feel more thrust over 4,000 RPM! Throttle response is improved as well. These cams work amazingly well with headers and larger throttle bodies.
The Schrick M5 cams are 268° for intake and exhaust with 11.3mm of valve lift. This opens the valves deeper and longer to expedite flow. The perfect time for installing these cams is when the heads are off for carbon cleaning. Some heads require very slight machining to clearance the cam lobes (inconsistent tolerances from BMW's foundry). Otherwise, they are a drop-in replacement for the original stock cams.
Price is for the set of 4 cams (2 intake, 2 exhaust).

1. While new springs may not be required, you must ensure the new valve lift does not fully compress the spring. It may be necessary to shim the spring's installed height.
2. Valve timing and valve opening durations are shown minus the ramps.
3. Valve timing is shown in °Crankshaft in relation to TDC.
4. All valve lift figures are shown without deduction of valve lash, i.e. the actual valve lift is the stated valve lift minus the valve lash. Hydraulic lifters have no lash so the valve lift is the actual valve lift.
Made in Germany.
