i would reccomend a wade cam..send wade cams a pm they are a site sponser..

the problem is you will be limited to the size of the cam you can use on a std ecu, due to the au ecu dont like the changes in manifold vacuum caused by a modified cam..
unless you go with a chip or flash tune to overcome the issues..

looks like he's putting it in his EF so he should be ok, J3 would be good to get though.

Anthony - Go with a WADE reground cam and J3 chip. Also depends on if you plan on running a stall or if you want a lumpy note etc.

stall is often referred to a stall converter for your trans. It stalls reps to an appropriate rev range prior to putting power to ground. Required for large high rev cam choices. Gets you off the line quicker in a race and rev will be in optimal area for cam.

Cam will cost $188 to regrind your own cam plus postage. Add $50 if you want to get of their with no exchange.

J3 can around $250 plus cost of custom tunes. Plus cost of dyno time to achieve tunes.

There is a number of places in SA that do tuning. I recommend Heinrich Performance and BRE for anyone living down south. You could also go to Towlers if you live North. Morpowa is another option or Fisher Performance.
