recondition camshafts

just shipped out some engine parts for the inspect+recondition work...

so looked at my camshafts... ( that shop doesn't do camshafts)


tried making pictures, but didn't work... to much reflection and not enough detail to show the stuff...

basically , on the left camshaft... there's two cams that have pitting
not very deep, and about 1/3 of a square cm

i have one cam with similar pitting on the right camshaft


i also have visible wear on 3 other cams , my guess , i'de say about 0.4 mm wear from the rocker arm...


my question :

can this be fixed? if so , who's good at it? ( preferably in europe )

if not , how hard is it to find a good second had set of S cams
or aftermarket replacement...


and what would either repair, or replacement cost me???


EDIT, just got a link from these guys
http://www.webcamshafts.com/porsche-auto.html

either reweld my old camshafts
or get new ones made from scratch

does anybody have experience with these guys? any good?

repairing my own cams would be 683$ + shipping to and from the US

new ones would be 836$+ 165$for MFI pulley+shipping to europe
and would be a 4 bearing setup ( can old camshaft housings be modified or can they run without modification ??)
