The cam has now been fitted and I'm rather impressed with the result. It definately has more after 2500rpm, and to me it has more from idle too, so I'm very happy atm. Ended up costing about $250, bought for $120 and fitted for about $130, so it's $250 well spent in my mind.
I've done a short sound video, and it sounds awesome on idle now, not to say it's louder as well (there goes the db reading I had :P).

Here's a couple of pics that I took with a tripod which I bought this morning, I used a different camera setting that requires either a very very still hand or a tripod. They came out great in the end.

[MREL 97] now has a Woodgrain Stereo Surround that I picked up for $100.

Cheers. Well it has been a long week, but [MREL 97] is back to normal. My father and I took the car to bruce's yesterday, and found out that they had to shim all 6 inlet tappets and took out the cam and checked it (which was fine), now you can hear the injectors working, so I'm very happy. Also, I had the new exhaust fitted on the weekend and it now sounds great (without all the tapping lol).

Really nice looking mont, I love the wheels on it, although I love the EL Mont factory ones too. Maybe you can sell them to me :D

Saw you the other day at Elizabeth On tuesday night, was with my GF to see The new bond movie. You were talking to some guy with a barina lol.

Was thinking of coming up and saying hello but thought it may be weird. :D

Looks great man.

This morning I took the car down to AAA Exhausts to have the Redback resonator removed and replaced with a hot dog resonator as I was looking for a bit more sound from the exhaust. The difference is quite noticeable, as the sound video shows here:
