well you just fitted ALL the XR6 gear, so it would be the same as what an XR6 gets.

uhh by adding all that to your standard engine, you just turned it into an XR engine...minus the ECU.

It should be worse since you are putting more fuel into your engine...but the results is a little bit of a faster engine.

Fuel consumption shouldn't change too much.

If it comes with an ECU, then you have a complete XR6 motor so to speak. So expect fuel consumption to be the same as a normal XR6 motor.

Yes timing chain can be taken out while the head is out, it is actually easier to remove the chain while the head is off. While you're at it, change the guides as well and make sure everything lines up before you put the chain back on randomly.

its a complete waste of time to fit an XR spec cam if you have the head off, spend the $140 odd and get a decent wade cam.
the xr cam is not a noticeable difference to the std cam, the main thing that made the xr's faster was the 3.45 gearing.

fitting the xr6 gear is a good easy mod to start with if you get it for the right price and esp if you already have the old head off, you will notice an small increase in power and torque with stuff all difference in economy. its not hard to change a cam later on down the track if you decide to go that way.
