The idle was s**t for a few hours after i got it back from the shop but once the computer learnt the cam its back to basically stock quality idle. Can be a tad bit grumpy on a really cold morning, but nothing to wet yourself about.

If doing it again, i'd definatly get a vernier adjustable cam gear, as i realy feel my car isnt running full potential, it feels like it needs tuning. For a cam like this, a chiptorque chip (or similar, unichip) can push the car to full potential, this setup was used in my mates old EF, (same cam/diff as my car) but with a chiptorque chip and vernier cam gear and it flew, pushed 146rwkw and would have destroyed my car as it sits.

Any idea what the cam, vernier & chip would set me back?

Can I expect s**t fuel economy from this set-up?

Thanks mate.

If its your weekend warrior now, then economy doesnt play a part... And if you want performance then you dont want economy.

If cars are your hobby/interest then you have to pay to play... If you dont want to pay to play, then it is no longer your hobby/interest...

Don't worry ...I definitely want to pay to play!

I've already spent a few $K on my baby, and will definitely do the cam & LSD at some point.

Just wanted an idea of the best thing to do ...without going overboard & completely screwing my idle & fuel economy!

Think I'll have to stop short of a Turbo & Intercooler tho' ...at least that's what I'm saying now...
