I have done some research but no one is advertising them yet. Or have I just missed them all together?

They don't really need it.. they already have variable timing anyway.. probably why so few compenies have bothered.

OK cool thanks for your help. Does the BA have variable timing?

why would bother with a car that makes around 180 > 190 stock standard.... basic "mods" and you would be pushing around 200 ish kws (at fly)

As be said before because of the fact of VCT you wouldn't really need one....

it doesnt matter whether its got vct or not.....vct only helps a bit, its not a great system like vtec on the hondas (even they have plenty aftermarket cams available)

I think Mock does some doesnt he? (not that id buy them)

I have a full exhaust coming. Also going to put on a cold air induction. So was thinking about maybe a set of cams then a flash tunner. I am already very impressed with the performance of the old girl but could use a little more.

VTEC and VCT are two completely different things.
VTEC brings in another cam lobe, more lift and duration.
VCT changings cam timing.

I haven't seen much success with cams in N/A BAs.

Probably because the VCT maps need a bit of tuning to make the most out of the new cams.

With the turbo engines I'm lead to believe that the Nizpro cams are only high lift versions of the standard cams.

wich is all you would ever want in an NA engine anyway. they rev high enough as it is. leave the duration alone and have some custom cams done with as much lift as they can. posible on a tighter LSA. have the ECU tuned to suit

OK so next question is it worth having the head ported and polished? I can see the reasoning behind the cams so I will have a look around and see if any1 does a high lift set to suit.
