Have you read through the Crescent Motor Sport & Wade forums? There's a lot of feedback on what different grinds do. If you're on a budget, consider a reground cam from Wade.

The main thing to consider is where you want your engine power most. Low, mid range or high?

As a starting point, consider the Wade 1636. It's suited to auto transmissions and doesn't require any changes to the stock ECU. You would also need 1.9mm shims under the HLAs to compensate for the metal ground off the cam lobes.

CMS also do a Stage 2 grind which is excellent, but they're in Sydney.

bugger the cam for now save your money and i mean save.
get a blower then get a cam with a blower specific grind. get best of both worlds

i wonder wat a 4L would sound like with a custom setup 6/71 with like 700 THOU of lift on a blower cam and running meth? oh the whine oh that meth smell :lol: and the noise oh the lumpyness of the way too big cam thats one hell of a recipe
could the block handle it?

anyone know an wanna tell me
