Ah ha, Nick may want to update his website, last i looked his site was saying they were on backorder.


You had a shop install your right scott? Is it a pretty big job? Was it costly?

Did you have to talk to someone, cuz I don't see it listed on their site.

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

yes....a very good mechanic friend of mine did the HO cams install. there are a few specific tools you need.

Call and talk to Cory at justforjeeps and tell him you want the 2002 HO cams, springs

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

So did you go back to stock if you took the HO cams out?

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

i have done cam install a while back. It is not a hard job if you are familair with engines. It's an easier job then doing a tradional pushrod cam. I didn't use any special tools but allot of guys use a wedge tool put between the chains and the slack adjuster so the timing does not change while you are removing the cam sprocket. I personally used some heavy duty zip ties and it worked great.

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

Sounds like it's a little out of my ability/cost range.

Mine too but i still asked them to make them to help out those that want it. Do it for the good of all 4.7 owners.

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

Thanks guys... I check on the H/O cams every week... they are non in any dealership inventory... There may be a few sets laying around here and there but as far as I know they are on back order.

BUT if we can get COMP cams to make us cams... they will be able to make cam grinds that make the H/O cams look weak. We will be able to get more agressive and even chose our own custom grinds over the phone.

In a nut shell... Although H/O cams are a great mod... they are our ONLY MOD as far as cams go... We need more then one option when it comes to cams. And COMP CAMS has the ability to bring these to our door step.

If you guys can.... spread the word on all the JEEP forums your a member on... the more 4.7L owners we can get to ask for cams the better.

If COMP CAMS makes 4.7L cams, it will open many new doors that have been previously closed to the 4.7L. We have SCT to tune our cams... so we can get more aggressive with the profiles and make even more HP... And you boosted guys can make more power with better cams for boost... Not to mention the rest of the after market will follow suite and start looking at the 4.7L a bit harder.

Again, thank you for making the effort to contact Comp Cams... I think we have already woke them up... we just need to keep them awake! Spread the word and we will have Custom Cams in no time.

SPEED SAFE, AIR RAM

Re: 4.7l comp cams!!!

If you have already e-mailed them... your next step is to make the call... The call does take a bit of time to get through but its worth it... even if the guy on the other end says NO there is nothing and will be nothing... If he gets 4-5 calls asking about the 4.7L you can rest assured he will bring it up to his supervisor... thats what our goal is... We want to saturate them with request to the point a small amount makes it past the "SCREENERS" who answer phones & e-mails.

Im glad to see the JEEP guys stepping up... Out of all platforms with the 4.7L the Ram and Jeep guys are the ones who do the most mods to them. So you guys NEED these Cams... and once Comp Makes them... The H/O cams would become obsolete and will not stack up to the tamest Comp Cams.

SPEED SAFE, AIR RAM
