Yeah it does.

Where are you getting a 1004@114 from?

I wanted one of those for my car, but all I could find going cheap was a 112. Puts a little lump in the idle.

yeah it fits
but don't expect a fast car after you do it.
mine went 0.5 sec slower down the strip after fitting one. so i took it out again.

well mine definatly goes faster with the 1004-14 in, thats with extractors and exhaust and cold air. hit 2500rpm and look out. i just put in an interceptor ECU and HP4 chip, makes things even more fun. but mines not an XR6 though.

I too have heard good and bad reports from these cams.

The standard XR cam is reallly focused on mid range gain, the wade cam may not be (anyone???)...
That would explain a small drop in speed, especially in automatics.

Maybe with the rest of the motor flowing better you would get good gains from the wade, like mrnasty.

Theres an easy solution, ask Keith @ Wade Cams for a cam with an earlier exhaust open for the auto, so bit more lower/mid then top...
