Anyone know what's being used to replace the Wade 1636?...I'm new to the Forum, Doing an EL XR6 into my Beloved XG falcon Ute ( My first Aussie Car ). So far I've had a 92DT XR6 head done, decked, checked, cleaned, peened, ported and sorted....now I need a Cam...It's got the normal mods, full extractors, 2.5" all the way back, intake box swapped out and bigger ducting, good plugs and leads, etc. Just need an idea of what's being run to replace that cam since Wade's gone out of business apparently...

Running the BTR Auto, looking for power when I want it, but not completely useless for longer trips. J3 chip is already waiting for the new cam specs...

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

"For those of you not yet aware, after over 50 years in business Wade Cams have closed down.
We are acquiring some of their machinery as well as all of their profiles and are beginning the process of moving everything to our factory this weekend.
We appreciate your patience over the next few weeks while we sort everything out but we are excited to see where these additions will take us.
We would not be where we are today if it wasn't for George Wade and Wade Cams. We wish Chris, Keith and Neville all the best in their future endeavours"

No worries... Report back and let us all know what they now have kept/changed...would be good to know for future reference.

Thank you sir! I might be looking into another milder grind to make the EL a little more stable without a J3 chip! Cheers

They have them!!!...both Billet and Regrinds!.. the bloke at the shop was really helpful, had great prices on cams too, Billets going for just over $500 and regrinds under$200. I'll be sending in my cam for a regrind as soon as I can.
