Crane 2031, Crane 2030 or TFS 1 are the most popular.

what exactly are you aiming for with your mods?

NA? Forced induction?
Are you wanting a tough daily driver, or a weapon for the drags?

If you want something thats still going to be a good "street" car, I would recommend the crane 2030 (if you have 1.6 rockers) or the 2031 (for 1.7 ratio rockers)

I have the 2031 in my XR8 at present, its a nice baby cam. a little bit lumpy but not over the top.

I've opted for the Trickflow Track Heat Stage 1 cam

Apparently these will produce good low end power and will make just a tad more up top than it's crane competitors

These are also designed for 1.6 RR's

What sort of extra power do the 8's get with a replacement cam?

185kw + V8's, for example...

AU V8's get great results with 220-240kw fairly common, more if you have a decent exhaust. E-series V8's won't get anywhere near that because of their restrictive heads and intake manifolds.

As said the 2031/2030 or TFS1 cams are great options, and will normally keep the EEC happy.

Thank you to all those people out there who gave advice!!!
I really appreciate it!!!!

I have a standard twin system at present, i want to know which is better to replace it with, another twin system or maybe a single system, at the moment she is a bit quiet for my liking.

if installing one of these mentioned cams 2030 / 2031 and are able to achieve around the 240 kw mark with the right exhaust and intake mods aswell as lifters and springs etc .
What can one achieve with changing both the injector size to say 24 and the throttle body to say 75 mm ? would i achieve around 250 kw and above or am i asking too much ?
Im just curious as i sorta went a little overkill on exhaust size ( twin 2 1/2 with straight through cats and pacemaker tri y's ) . Was hoping the extra mods would suffice the extreme exhaust flow lol .

My stock 185kw XR8 made 139.5rwkw

After adding 2030, springs, and YT RR's it made 161.5rwkw.

After adding pacey 4-1 headers, XForce 2.5" cats, and 3" lukey cat back it made 170rwkw.

Still running stock airbox, paper filter etc...

Another cam to consider is the Crane 2020. It's recently been installed in my car, and is deliciously lumpy at idle and pulls extremely hard all the way from idle... I haven't had mine dynoed since the cam change, but another member on here reached 180 odd rwkw, with this cam and an edelbrock manifold with GT40P heads... and stock injectors.
