For starters, they are twin cam, Have a look at the crow performance cam pack for around the 650 mark. You will need to get it tuned to suit and be prepared for a little it of a lumpy idle. BTW...spellcheck is your AWESOME friend :)

othe way around!!! -Get the mods 1st.. THen have the car tuned with a custom tune to suit the mods.. otherwise you will have to re flash again.. costing much more money..

I'd do what this guy is suggesting.

The gains in getting the cam phasing right have been well documented in some car magazines. There's a reason why they are tuned rather conservative, and its not because they make too much power (except for the power). Its for emissions.

Unless you want a balls out 160rwkW+ screamer, I'd leave the cams alone.

im thinking he will be making the 160rwkw quite easily with the mods stated if he adds a custom tune

Could do. But from what I have seen in regards to the single cam I6's is that for 160kW you need a decent cam and some head work. Its nothing to be sneezed at. I'm just basing my comment off that.

Yeah its a fair bit easier with the DOHC. They seem to respond well to cheapish mods, and for starters its making 190fwkw where as the au is significantly less than that i think??

With new cams, a BF should make 170rwkw with the right custom tune without too much dramas.

Dude the crow cams are a waste of time.
The KPM cams work but cost a fortune to get done.
And the Nizpro cams are for top end only.
Some of the gtuys are getting nearly 1000 hp at the crank with the stock cam and a big turbo set up,built up motors of course..
Mate put a turbo or a whistle on it,you won't be sorry.
