Hey everyone,
I've had some time off work n brought a project to keep me busy its a ea spack with a bbm conversion and el interior and dash for $1000 with f**k head gasket well I sat down one night on the web n done some research on every 3.9l/4.0l engine ever made I've cracked the 170 rwkws mark using all stock parts expect for a j3 chip n pacemaker extractors n exhaust do is wat I used:

Au bottom end
Ea cam
Tickford 94dt head (I had cleaned up the ports)
Bbm manifold
El computer with j3 chip
Pacemakers 4499s
110 cell hi-flow cat
2 1/2inch exhaust with two mufflers (for abit of more back pressure)
Xr6 fuel reg
Au injectors
3" CAI pipe with el xr6 shorkel n hi flow filter
Gasket kit
And a full service
A lot of people talk about the xr6 cam being the biggest stock cam but I lost 9 rwkws I just thought I wwould share my budget build I'm saving to build a new engine for a t66 that I have sitting in the shed so every cent counts :lol:

I've looked everywhere ea cams n I only seen 2 or 3 forums about it so I thought I would prove it once for all. My engine machinst recommends these as a cheap turbo cam for a budget turbo build

But he then mentioned the cam apparently being good for turbo. And I was posting under the influence of many beers.

OP - with a stock cam you won't make more than 130rwkw.

So the EA cam in my back yard out the early 88 model is worth something ?

Nah but seriously , I have read the AU E gas rods are the strongest , but how much power can they take ?

Also have read the EF/EL rods are thicker then the AU rods though lol

au e gas rods are same as normal au, its the ba or bf egas that has slightly stronger rods..
std au rods can still handle around 300rwkw and 18psi boost,,

ef rods are not really thicker its that they are shorter then au/ba that makes them slightly stronger...

Dont forget the heads ported and it's got the higher compression engine, and a tune. another guy on here claims 140-155 odd kw in his ed from a ported head, ea cam and other few bits
We all know some dynos get more excited than others though :)

he "cleaned up his ports". I cleaned up the ports on my tickford head before I put it on, and I have a 977b dyno tuned. I should rip that out and throw in a ea cam by the look of that.

Does anyone have the specs on the EA cam? With that much potential out of a reasonably mildly modified engine, it sounds like something of a secret weapon. Thanks.
