After the debacle with the
failure of my HK$ camgears
I sourced a pair JUN replacements for my Soarer but wanted a cheaper than the $600+ pair JUN replacement option for my project car's engine.

I've been working with John from UAS, who already had prior experience with custom Nissan alternatives, on having my JUN camgears replicated locally.

The beauty and benefit of the JUN camgears are that they cleverly re-use the hardened Toyota factory contact outer/teeth that are prone to wear and failure on aftermarket soft metal options like the HK$ ones.

Now after a few months of effort, I've managed to get John to agree to produce these in limited quantities and at a special release ALSC price.

A few pics below from the front and rear showing the UAS adjustable camgears.

Material/Design Specifics-
JUN replica adjustable camgears
utilise oem outer hardened contact teeth for reliability
Suit Toyota 1JZ / 2JZ engines
CNC machined billet alloy centres
Stainless steel M6 button head Allen key cap bolts
Twin 0.7mm high tensile washers for strength and self locking
Adjustable +/-8 degrees with visible reference marks

Normal RRP $185 exchange + $45 deposit each camgear
ALSC special release price $130 exchange + $45 deposit each camgear

Note that John has a limited pool of 5 exchange camgears, so it's a case of first in, first served and if the exchange camgears aren't returned promptly, then the next user is affected much like what is happening with the MV Auto valve bodies for auto shift kits.
