Basically.
Thinking about a cam swap. Don't want something heaps aggressive, would a ef xr6 cam go in and would I have to change springs or anything like that.
Also what sort of power gains would I expect.

My car is a eb spak series 1 5 speed with a strong motor.

I would put in the valve springs too.......it helps if you have an XR6 ECU too, but from EBII or ED, but will need a black box to get around the smartlock side of things, so it will work.

What are springs worth?
So I can get it to work if I get the xr6 ecu and the black box that bypasses the smartlock.
Is there a reason I need the ecu. Would the car run without it.

From my small knowledge dosnt the xr6 ecu only give more agressive timing?
This could be achieved with a good tune right?

The ECU is to get the full benifit of having the cam. Don't know what springs are worth.
You could go a piggy back ECU, or a J3 chip.....need to be tuned on a dyno.
Its more than timing, also the fuel map.

Thanks mate.
Might focus on getting a lsd first so I can actually put the power down.
Sorta get it now tho.

Yep, I have trouble getting a good launch too, and my cam is stock.
