id say its just the power band of the cam, lost a bit of low down torque but hopefully gaining top end...


thats it, my car has troubles dropping stand stills, im running a wade cam, and my power band is 2500rpm onwards,

it will light up, but takes a bit of enthusiasm, spins real slow with not much smoke, but once it hits 2500rpm, magic. Power comes on and so does the smoke.

I had to get rid of my 205/15's tyres on my car. Any more than half throttle i would lose traction in the dry and spin the wheels all the way up the road. In the wet it was god damn dangerous.

So i got 16in mags witth 225/50/16 Sava Intensa directional tyres and i can still spin them piss easy. Off the lights when i floor it they spin, holding the brake the spin on the spot and going around a corner i can get some serious spin all the way up to 2nd gear change.

i would say buddy you have a serious problem with your car.

I can't spin my wheels even when I stall it up to close to 3000, the most i would get is a 2 second chirp depending on the slope of the hill i'm on. probably a good thing if you have plenty of power and can't spin the wheels that well.

Well they handle alot better than the bridgestone RE-88's i had on the car before. I get really good wear out off them, driving in the wet the car handles soooooooooo much better and braking has also improved especially with the ABS my car has.

and for the price i reckon there top value.

i did that in my EA (auto) without shift kit....though it was raining

EDIT: by the way in my EL i couldn't do burnouts and my car had a really rough idle....that was due to my rocker cover gasket had a hole in it and needed to be replaced and also my timing was 2 notches off which gave me the bad idle and loss of power as well...so u might want to check that...now since i fixed it i can do it easily....and around corners too.
