I want my idle to be as lumpy as possible without losing power, I love a lumpy idle :) is the wade suitable or should I look elsewhere? Don't mind having to get aftermarket ECU+tune if needed.

Also too scared to try fit it myself, can anyone recommend a mechanic?
Thanks

i know hence why i'm asking for someone who can remove my cam, have it reground by wade, and re-install it for me :)

if no one can recommend a mechanic I guess I'll just randomly call the local ones tomorrow and ask them...

Buy the cam then just pay $120 extra as a core deposit and you get it back when you return the old cam. Also i just did my cam and its not to hard just take your time get all the knowledge from the top blokes at fordmods, get the right parts and set aside a day to do it properly. There is also a link i found in here to download a free copy of the gregories manual which give you the basics on how to do it. If ever in doubt ASK. Thats what this website is for. Plus you get the satisfaction of saying i did it myself.

Whatever you do dont f**k it up lol :D .

the CMS3 Cam is great, i have one in my EL, has a nice lopey idle and pulls pretty hard from about 2600rpm.... not the best for stop start though IMO cos it bogs down a lot in lower revs.... or maybe thats just my car lol
