go with a crow cam man, i know it costs extra but it really does make a difference and gives your car a mint note.

Well I am happy with my JMM DEV3HL cam.

The power comes in from 3000 to 5600 and has a definite powerband from 3800 to 5300. The idle isn't bad I can get mine to idle in drive at 600rpm a bit lumpily but it very very rarely stalls and then only when half warmed up. Cold is great warm is bad and hot is OK for the idle.

I didn't go the full DEV kit and I found the bottom end 2000-3000 felt a bit flat . Maybe the JMM race series extractors fix that maybe they don't. get the cam springs and vernier ans shims all from JMM and its an easy enough job to do.

I would consider a DEV4 cam too with that you could get away with no springs which makes it easier to fit.

i spoke to jim about it thru email but he never replied on the DEV4 cam, i was wonderin whether i would get more power through a DEV4 cam on its own, or the dev3hl cam/springs and cam gear kit. Anyone know bout this? I'd like to get a fair idea on this sought of thing b4 i go spendin my money on it, first year apprentice wages arnt the best :shock:

dont know about kw but it makes 194hp at the rears, and yer mine makes power at about 3000- (sounds like 5800 or 6000, but its hard for me to say coz i havent got a rev counter). cost me 950 for the cam vernier and new springs, but thats with me being slack and getting a mechanic to put it in. it idled like s**t before the chip. was funny, at the lights i always had to put it in nuetral.
