Tomei began operations in 1968 as a race car tuner in Japan. Over the last 40 years Japan has emerged as one of the leaders in automotive research, racing, and culture. Tomei products have been utilized in nearly every motor sport imaginable. Tomei’s racing heritage means their research and design team have first hand knowledge of the extreme demands racing puts on an engine. Using only the highest quality materials means that Tomei’s products can handle the intense strain and heat a purpose built engine will experience whether it be on the street or the track. Tomei’s attention to detail is second to none. All of their products are thoroughly researched and engineered to achieve optimal efficiency. Because of even miniscule differences in measurements can cause catastrophic engine failure, all Tomei products fall within strict tolerances. Tomei machines all of their engine components to enhance airflow and ensure proper fitment and seal.
In order to make cam clearance maintenance-free and quieter operation sound, the hydraulic lash adjuster was adopted for the SR20 engine. However when aiming at higher RPM ranges and for higher horsepower output from engine modifications, it is important to improve the reliability of head system parts and to make valve drive train set correctly for the suited cam profile. So it is necessary to eliminate the use of the hydraulic lash adjusters. We have adopted the solid pivot system to enable adequate cam clearance adjustments while keeping total height of pivot of each cylinder fixed. Therefore it is possible to build a more precise head system in a shorter time compare to the other conventional methods. Improvements in the reliability and lower pricing were made possible at the same time by having reduced the number of parts required.

Please note these are for SOLID type camshafts, NOT lash type. Solid pivots DO NOT MEAN BETTER, unless camshaft is designed for it.**
