So not worth it, whats it pull in the end?

I recommend Joe from CMS (Crescent Motorsports), he has a stage 2-5 cam packages avail. His stage 2 cam pulled 148rkw in yobbo's wagon. Im sure you wont have many problems either.

Regie from ehre also has a package in his car too (head/cam)

Contact Joe on 9600-6229 and discuss him your price range and what your after and im sure ull get more value for money then surecams packages.

the cam cost the same as a crow. and the chipt is only $595

lets you use a cam that other wise would not idle . it also allows sure cam to get away from the very wide lobe center every on has to use to get the things to idle.
it's on the same lines as the wade 1521a but with out the need for $1000pluss for any ECU and $300 for tunning.

looks worth it to me

One of the guys who worked for wade started up his own cam business a while back. I think he's in the nunawadling area in vic.

I'll see if I can get his number is have a chat to him. Just another option to throw into the Wade/Crow/CMS/surecam mix.

no it's $440 for the cam (billet). and $595 for the chip because it too agressive for a stock ecu

compare that to a $490 regrind from JMM


as for power i don't know yet because i havn't used it.
but from you attitude alone it makes me want to buy it just to put you in your place

Do you know if the cip is custom tuned for you car. Or is it a 'one size fits all' type.

it's a chip to suit the cam. not a custom tune.
in the same way the factory tune is fixed and not custom tuned for each engine


i posted a link to the site a few post back.
