If you want a good cam for a resonable price talk to joe at Cresent motors, if your going to run a stock head his stage 2 cam will work but if your getting the head worked (ported) then the stage 3 will put a good smile on your face, he will also tell you what is needed to go with the cam(springs & shims).


Does he have a website or a phone number I can contact him on?

Cam + Porting is actually what I'm looking at getting done.

Dude, dont worry about an ECU swap, at most just get a J3 chip prog'd as a Ticky from a bloke on here.
Especially as youre only going a mild cam.


What do you mean by 'Ticky'? Do you know which fella does them?

Yeah I dont really have that kind of cash at the moment, I'm just looing for something you run the best $:rwkw cam and by the looks of it all cams are under $500 so spending that much if it's gonna be some big noticeable gains doesnt bother me.

i had a stage 2 crow cam. simple bolt in, no shims, no ecu nonsence, no fuel system adjust, no porting or anything.

all it needed was a "recommended" zorst which i already had.

however i never put it in as i have the hybrid head that f**k my plans over

if i could do it all again, i'd go the s2 crow or a 1673?? wade with shims. i think its the 1673 for the auto or something??? all this extra stuff your after is not needed.

Tickford XR6 spec.
I think he's galapogas01 or something on here.

A wade regrind costs $235 + post, then once you send your old cam back you get a $100 refund. so after post a regrind cost around 150 ish, + 50 again for shims. bang for buck though, its miles ahead of say a catback, which costs the same, if not more.
