t5 cam identification
 
Is there any way to identify t5 cams once they are out of the car?
One being to check and make sure they are t5 cams and #2 to figure out which one is exhaust and intake?

Exhaust and intake are the same cam iirc they have the same PN on them

Exhaust cam will have the notch on the end for the distributor that doesn't exist on a t5 car. At least that's how I was able to distinguish exhaust from intake cams.

i belive the lift is differnt on the t5 cams v.s t7. i can try to find the thread that it was posted in but there are so many about these cams. actually i have a set in the back of my truck, i will go try to see the part number.

tweak great info thanks

I do not see them on there they are close but coming up with:
ex: 5210-11 9148016 other number 914562
in: 5210-14 9148016 other number 914563

anyone work at a dealership and run these and see please...?

You can run part numbers on Genuinesaab.com here:

Part numbers do supercede into new numbers too.

5210-1 1256190

This is the number I got off a 93 2.1 intake cam, I am going to use the above methods to see if I can prove that.

Seems I need to find a number that starts with a 7 or 9...756146(7) looks like the final 7 in the number never made it in the stamp.

So I will conclude the last digit isn't on the cam, but since a saab part number is 7 digits long, just drop the final digit on the chart at 900Aero.com and use that to compare with your numbers.

That number you have "914562" doesn't look like it is on the chart, but yes the other number is a T5 intake cam.

I have and if i take it right the 914963= exhaust but does not have a notch at the end like the other one on rear ( non cam side)
where as the other one 914584 comes up with nothing... but has the notch at the end which I would think would be the exhaust but could be wong

spgstud 06-08-2009 04:22 PM

never mind just found it ... thanks for the link can not wait to install them this weekend...

Says it came from a B205 (T7) from 99-01. Exhaust side. It has little lift and little duration. Get money back.

Whats the other one say?

I have it in my car, will take a look tomorrow.

Thanks for the info, just e-mailed the seller.

spgstud 06-08-2009 06:13 PM

is there any way to post that link with the following info on the t5 cam identification in a sticky so that its readily available for others so that they can determine...(for those, including myself, that are wondering)?

Marksy 06-08-2009 06:22 PM

By now there should be a whole site devoted to T5 cams. LOL. I installed a set from a 93 9K. gee I hope they are advantageous. Well , they feel better but I never know.

Here is a link to add to the madness.

ok, i need t5 cams. guy thought i would put t7 cams in a t7 car thinking i just upgraded my car (although he keeps saying he had them in his modified og9-3 and he was sure they were t5, yet he lets me keep them).

anyone here has a set of some inexpensive cams? :> :>
