anyone know if 3sgte adjustable cam gears will fit on a rev1 5sfe?


also Does anyone know of a st184 with a succesful B.E.A.M.S swap?

They will not. Even though the 5sfe is a dohc it is driven with only one cam gear.

an adj. cam gear for a 2jzge will fit with a slight enlarging of the mounting hole. the only bad thing is you can only adjust the intake cam. the 5sfe exhaust cam is driven by the intake cam. this means if you advance the intake cam timing you will adversely retard the exhaust cam timing and vice versa.

that off course doesn't make it a bad idea. you could still tune it to yield positive results. it just depends on your setup.

this means if you advance the intake cam timing you will adversely retard the exhaust cam timing and vice versa.
When the intake advances the exhaust also advances even though the cams spin in opposite directions in the head.

As was said you can use a 2jz cam gear and enlarge the hole. I have this on one of my cars now. If you want a perfect fit though you also need to shave a couple of mm off the face that meets the intake cam. Otherwise the timing belt doesn't ride down the center of the gear and you may have to bend your timing covers a bit to keep it from rubbing.
