Ride: AU II XR6 UTE

what cams do people put in their manual AU's these days?

Heard the 1636 wade gives some nice low down, which i'm after becuase i just like grunt off the line (e.g. 0-60km/hr). I think she goes fast enough over 4000rmp.

I've done heaps of searching, but every seems to be talking about e series more than AUs. 977b is the most accepted, Correct?

Bit of a conservative on the fuel as well, so I don't want power at the expense of decent economy.

can people with AU (hp) motors tell me a bit about what's worked best for them? (have usual mods - exhaust, intake)

its really sad to see a company that's been around for about 50 yrs, with great customer service products and prices have to shut their doors cause its not profitable anymore

no offence to wade cams , their service was top notch when i got a cam for my auxr6hp

it made no difference at all :( i hope the new cams are better
sure i did not do a dyno before and after but
felt nothing

swapped the cam back to original and car still went the same

the cam was put in another stock au ( futura i think it was )and that owner noticed a difference



also can you still buy the shims?

i have a camtech cam, its a billet and not a regrind so no shims required! mine is ct007842b profile! i got 185 kw at the wheels (with intake exhaust and a tune) however to get his power i run at about 16l/100.

this is what i have to give you an idea of what it did for me
