he said he can notice it so it must have either more power, more torque or a shift in power band down lower...i'd imagine the first two tho :P

i fitted a 1004-14 to a customers car also had the head ported localy
i was a little let down by the power increase but the customer was happy.
you could feel a power increase from around 3000rpm up
i should have dyno figures by the end of the week

will be nice when the next one comes in as he is going for a wolf 3D as well so we can put a real cam in it. probably a sure cams cam

yea its an increase in toque and power. i havent given it any stick yet. i had it in 3rd going up a hill up to about 90 less tha half throttle and i could feel it kick in. it kept on pulling consistently too! neither i or the car wanted to stop!! in a few days ill give it a real good run and see how it goes.

the idle is fine. sounds stock. its a bit over the place atm coz the ecu is adjusting. everytime i slow down at the lights it would stall or nearly stall but it was already gettin better.

c'mon, give that metal rod some credit. afterall, isn't pretty much everything in your engine JUST a metal-something-or-rather.

this profile adds real good torque from 2500 onwards, n also, for me, after the car warms up, wen i slow down eg traffic lights, it wants to stall, n wen u turn the steering wheel its more prone to (eg reversing up a driveway is just murder (stall it all the time reversing up a friends driveway)...this cam makes my revs all hunt too, all in all, this cam is powerfull jsut cruising round in 2nd gear down low u can feel it wants to move ;)
