In my oppinion it will be a good cam, similar to the wade 1636, which has proven to be a good cam. I hope that this helps.

Cheers
Jay

Jaysen,
I missed out on getting one of your cams but to your knowledge would this one work OK on LPG?

Yup I think that it would work a treat on LPG as it has a wide LSA, which is essential for keeping your airbox in one piece, although from memory the wade 1636 has a narrower LSA which might be a prob, however lift at TDC will still be shallow as they do run fairly tame lift, which means that the wade should still be a great cam also on LPG with a fatter midrange than the cam mentioned above.

So your recomendation is the wade 1636 for my AU motor on LPG, correct?

I hint a sense of sarcasm there along the lines. LOl

yes, crow cams a pretty good. I'm running an AU2 high torque cam. nothing fancy, it just complimented my port job pretty good. it addresses the lame take off, so I can tell you right now.... the first auto gear has nothing to do with its s**t take off. it was the stock cam. :wink:

but there is a trade off at the top end I'm afraid. :( ....




























...over 5400rpm

well i spoke to Wade and they claim they dont make Au grinds. Im still keen on the 2522 for my Au they recommended it for my Auto, im looking at the 2549 as well yes its a eseries cam but Ray said they can grind it for me to suit AU head, thou he said i need a stALL to for that cam cos it willl be bit boggy down low. Still weighing up my options for now and i wanna do headwork as well.
