Hi guys,

I was wanting to get a Decent Cam that i can possiably run with a turbo at a later date...

I was thinking a Stage 3 Cam so i can have a nice lumpy idle...

I realise if i get a Stage 3 Cam i'll need to do some valve work but i was wondering to what extent and how much am i looking to spend... for a I6 2003 BA Falcon Links would be muchly Appreciated... or would i be better off with a Stage 2 Cam for Bang for buck?

And also Welsh Plugs, Are they hard to replace and how much would it be for a new set for my falcon?

Cheers

Josh

Several things...
1. For the BA you don't need a cam, you need cams (plural)
2. I don't know if anyone even does cams for the N/A motors yet.
3. Why do you need to replace welsh plugs?

i got one bung at the back of the motor... well at least i think that it is... i blew a hose on friday. and now i have what appears to be coolant leaking out on my exhaust...

and also that and the fact i'm going throught 2L of coolant every 2 days. so i assume that is the cause...

My stupid n00b of a mate overfilled the resiviour... like i'm talking to the brim. hence the busted hose and suspect welsh plug

The cap should release pressure before a hose or welsh plug blows.
