Correct, I've got performance springs on my head, and the head has never been off the car.

I think you will just need an air compressor with a fitting so it connects to the sparkplug hole to replace the springs without taking off the head

You just simply cant beat wade on what you get for a mere $122.50, not everyone can afford between 300-500 on a cam, so dont bag them dood......

was a 1004.
installed with a vernier gear and setup as per wade specs.

emailed wade a few times about it and the reply i got was "it's bigger, it has to be faster" they offered no help at all.

at the most i was expecting maybe 0.1 sec improvment, but after about 20 runs down the strip alot of checking of the car and defferent aproaches at getting the car down the 1/4 nothing worked and nothing was wrong with the car

fair enough, that don't sound right though.

i just bought an ef xr6 auto that needs a head done on it, and was gonna throw a cam in it just to see how much better it drives.

i yeah one thing i didn't mention, with the wade cam it had a really really really BAD timing chain rattle. so bad in fact my dad could hear it coming up the street OVER my exhaust. that cam was the single biggest waste of my time and money ever. and for the product and after sales service i can't speak low enough of wadecams.
