sorry to get sidetracked but you played with the vernier gear troyman ? i played with mine heaps and found you can dial it in to work from idle or work over 3-4 grand. and it does go pretty well.
like most people that pay for a billet 519 i concur with wanting something else, in fact i wouldve saved the dosh and put an ecu/350holley with a speedway cam.
i'm pretty close to pulling the inection off mine and running a holley for consistancy,but don't like the idea of changing it over at rego time.

it will be about the same! the thermos dont make stuff all difference...

as for economy with the crow cam i went to the south coast at xmas i got 680km to the tank.
the trip comp had an average of 9.8ltrs per 100km..

but around home(city driving)its about 14 ltrs per 100kms..
which is about the same as it was with the std cam...
but with this cam i dont need to give it as much throttle to get it up and moving..

i ended up with it set at 0 deg on the vernia gear..
its a comprimise.. one way it was slugish down low and good up top, the other way it had huge balls of the line but ran out of puff at about 3800.
and the way it is at the moment it starts its power at about 1800rpm and is strong to about 4500rpm but still revs to 5500 easy.. so its ok
but im now looking at a bigger cam...

yer, fair enough i got similar results, at the end of the day though, you want bigger bang you gotta get a bigger cam :p

i've also got issues from me being a lazy (unt running a bbm without a switch causing an invisible brick wall of lost power at 3800 and shyte loads of off the line torque or slug under 3800 and shower of shyte over 3800, and considering the longivity of these engines i'd prefer to keep mine under 3800 in day to day operations. so i'd prefer a bigger cam but still dialed in down low. i've got mine advanced (can't remember how much off the top of my head) but haven't replaced timing chain. so possibly could equivilate to yours troyman. never can tell with these 250's though, some are just freaks and some are just dogs.

super smooth idle? a new cam for low down power will throw that idea out the window.


If he's looking for a cam that's good down low I would think the idle wouldn't be affected much.

Don't know about the crow cams, I have used the wade 1636 and its quite a good profile, and with a vernier gear you could adjust it to get torque earlier. Apart from that talk to the people grinding the cams and ask their thoughts too.

if you have to pay freight you won't get one that cheap....Pretty sure the freight would be $100 from within your state alone.

Best bet would probably be to scout the wreckers or this forum for cars with low kays getting wrecked

i doubt you will get one with low kays, a warranty, accessories and that has had (i am assuming by head you mean head gasket?) the head gasket recently re done for $600.

To get an AU engine to fit e series you will need to modify either the k frame or the sump too (but there's sticky's at the top of this section on how to do this).
