    Cam question

    I'm wondering why chrysler put the metal shield over the camshaft lobes on #1 cylinder?
    The only substitute for cubic inches is cubic dollars, how fast can you afford to go?

    Jeff, it is there on turbo models for a shield for the oil cap opening. This baffle changed locations on NA cars depending on where the oil cap was located.

    helps keep oil in and fingers out

    a missing baffle/deflector shield is a good indication someone's been there before ye

    Or that you may not have an actual turbo head.
