s14a VTC rattle/ticking

Recommended Posts

hi guys, im sure many others have asked this question before(i cant find any recent threads on it), but i have a Nissan Silvia S14a (1998) and the VCT ticks and rattles REALLY bad, it sounds like a turbo diesel when i drive it. usually only ticks on idle. ive replaced the solenoid.. but i dont know if its worth the 400-500 dollars on getting a new VCT cam gear, or is it possible to get adjustable cam gears and fit them to the stock cams... (i will make up for the power loss at a later date)

 

otherwise.. what is the most cost efficient way of doing this.. im not too keen on buying second hand VCT gears (because it may be no better than the original)

 

cheers.

ring taark and get him to get you one.. the gear could could of failed from lubrication from a stuffed solenoid.. if the noise isnt going away then best replace it..
