Just curious about your daily driver - what is it?
Is it N/A?
Or have you gone forced induction?

I use a bit more fuel with the stroker but as daily drivers go, it's a lot of fun so I put up with the additional fuel usage.

My daily driver is turbocharged and has been through the daily grind without failing to get from a to b with a 13.5km per 100k's, it was actually quite good on petrol.

Having the std cam with a slightly loud note and then the power is just omg best of both worlds sorta thing, as much as i want a lumpy e303 cam i think id just leave it up to the 110% reliable stocker.
