so assuming u paid about 60% price for the cams (bit of guess work), the job with new cams should be less than 1400?
Anyone got 1500 they can lend me? :) 1500 because I still need to get that evo II intake ive been meaning to get.
Just kidding, anyway good results. With the rev limit raised you`re also put further into the powerband when shifting too

I have the torque figures but I cannot remember what they are. I will post them.

I did a deal with the guys as the cams were pre-used. But cams, fitting and a day on the rollers was less than a grand. I think the cams alone (new) are about 800.

Yes, we will definately have to have another get together later on.


Any idea on torque figures?
How much did the whole thing cost (purchase of cams, re-mapping, power run etc).
Shame your not coming to the meet as I'd love to see it go!
We'll have to make sure we arrange another meet soon.


As I posted the other day, we suspected that the dyno was giving incorrect readings, which proved to be the case. The car was remapped yesterday and I ended up with 219bhp at the flywheel, up from 193bhp. The car absolutely flies, the throttle response is fantastic and it just pulls and pulls. There is a small hole in the torque at about 2000 rpm which I don't really care about but after 3000rpm the revs just build really fast. I cannot recommend this upgrade enough, if you want to pep up your car, go for a pair of Schricks and an engine remap/custom chip.
