Hi I have a ed falcon daily and was wondering which cam I should get. I don't know a lot about them eg lift etc. however Im after something to give me more power but idles like stock (with j3 chip). Was looking at a Clive cam 977b or 1521a, are these a good choice or should I get something different?
Thanks

If you are looking for top end power, either of these will do. They aren't going to sound like stock cam though. Do Clive Cams make the 1636 grind? That will give you more midrange power.

You should install an XR6 fuel reg as well.

The 977b at 114lsa will idle like stock once tuned. 112lsa maybe. 110lsa definatly not. The 1521 i think you will be able to notice it.
