RPD has not closed has just moved on to other projects.

They still have some stock avaliable for I6 cams, Let me know what you are looking for, I'll get in touch and see what they have, I know they have lowered the cost to recoup the layout only, so they are probably some of the cheapest cams out there now.

Yep certainly was a good cam, I think you were able to use it wothout doing valve springs from memory..
I ran the R6 for ages too with good results. Going into an auto there was no need for a hi-stall either as the idle was not grumpy enough to upset the stock convertor.

Yep... Standard spings, but mine was XR springs which may have made a minor difference.

Idle was perfect. And I even worked out the exact dial in spot for best power. Ended up with a 136rwkw with this cam and extractors.

Ahh, no, it was at intune motorsport and repeated within 3 rwkws at CV performance.

blow joes trumpet elsewhere. The guy can also ask in Cresent threads too and everyone can tell him how good joes gear is there.

Pencil and paper in hand, how many Jiggawatts would you like sir?

No hard feelings, its only a forum...
