dont know hey coz he said he has done work for blokes who have had crow cams and other installed at other places and tuned, and they have come into get other stuff done and he has offered to put BF cams into their BA free of charge to show them the difference and if the dont like it they would put their aftermarket cams back in, if they like the BF cams they pay for it. he hasnt had to swap them back yet
i will have a look at his dyno sheets soon to make sure its not all talk dont worry about that

but i been trying to find the BF cam specs but i cant find them atm to compair

i was told the BF pcm and wiring was programmed different to the BA so that it can get boths cams working differently which then made it go a bit better??

Will be interesting to see dyno comparisons between the 2 sets of cams showing the torque curves. I have read somewhere online about the BF models getting revised cam profiles but like you said it is quite hard to find cam specs.

BF onward ran dual independent VCT (VCT adjusts differently on intake and exhaust).
