Depends which cam you get as to the cost and what you have to do. E.g. Wade Stage 2, cost 120, need shims, or maybe you get a high performance crow and need an aftermarket ECU to run it depends which your lookgin at.

Just wanted a mild cam nothing too expensive, something that i can just chuck in with no real messing around (extra cost) the wade 1004 or something would that be sutible, i want mainly just quicker acceleration. Any suggestions?

thanks.

It should already have 3.45 gears in the diff so gearing is good enough.

XR6 cam in it too so I would stick with that and go for a unichip or chiptorque to get ign and A/F ratios spot on for better torque down low.

If you have to do a cam go for dev3HL from JMM.
