I had good success with the RPD R6 if you can find a second hand or unfitted one for sale. Idle was stock, so perfect for auto.

Judging by your power figure there, I'd say you were on a Shootout Dyno, and with an R6 I'd expect you'd nudge 150-155 on the same dyno.

Failing an R6, a Wade 1636 will give good results, probably around the 140ish power mark. And a stock idle.

Or if you want to spend some real $$$, a correctly timed Dev 5 cam on its own should give you 165+ rwkw. And a near stock idle to suit the auto.


Hmmm 165rwkw on a stock head id be Very surprised.

If it makes 130rwkw with those mods on that dyno, it will pull easy 165rwkw with a stock head still ;)

lol on that dyno maybe...... these heads flow just under 300Hp at the fly standard. thats 220KW at the motor. Being a little Generous take out drive train loss.

Ive got a stage 3 JMM cam in my Au with a tickford head over size inlet and just the ports cleaned up. Not sure what output KW it has but very sweet. Nice idle heaps off power good fuel economy if not pushed hard. Very please with it

Im tossing up on the dev 3 cam too. people tell me its cheaper to get a wade or whatever. But I am not chasing KW here. Im chasing torque. Whats the BEST CAM for torque?

I got a dev 5 cam, not sure what kw or torque gains i got as ive never had it dyno'd but it made a s**t load of difference it pulls way harder than stock cam.....youll pay the price with jmm gear though its not cheap
