if you lost power installing a wade cam YOU DID SOMETHING WRONG ! you can gain or loze compresion with different cam grinds.

when you order a cam you MUST BE HONEST ! and accurate , DRIVING STYLE , drag ,circuit , highway ,compresion ratio, headers size,length, gear ratio , YOU MUST HAVE EVERYTHING WORKING TOGETHER ( THE CORRECT COMBERNATION ) save yourself from agravation.

don't think so. put it with the shims and stock cam gear. nothing hard about that. a week or so later i put vernier gear on found the true TDC and set the cam up to wade specs. again nothing hard about that.
didn't help.

on top of that with the wade cam it got a really bad timing chain rattle.

got sick of lack of power and rattle took it out put the XR6 one back and hey presto no more noise the car was responcive again and had all of it's power back. it idled with no drama again.

i emailed wade a few times and called them with no help.

in short it was a big waste of money and i don't recomend wade cams to any one.....


Ps: i dont need coments like thats or some telling me how to do my job or the ins and outs of whats cam can and should do.

i'm a mechanic in a performance workshop i do this stuff every day and i've never had a problem like with any other cam company.
I'd be supries if the guy at wade knew the difference between a conrod and a piston

You'll love it when its in, But you don't need to use the other valve springs.
