Zaino, I put that $hit on everything
[email protected] said:Cams are useless on a 4v. We have tested and not have seen any worthy gains for the price. It will also not give you the sound you want either.
We did a test article in MMFF with their AmsOil Car
Barbaro said:I did a test too. I got 522 rwhp from ported heads (Livernois), boss intake, comp stage two cams, kooks long tubes (1& 3/4), kooks x pipe, Boss valve springs. The cams are worth 30 to 35 HP. This has been tested repeatedly. There are several people getting 500 rwhp with this set up. Cant get that number without cams. Although losing the vct is truly a loss. With the cams, The car is faster no doubt. But the engine is not nearly as flexible around town. I think I would be satisfied with 490 rwhp and keeping my stock cams. Thinking about it. For the track however, comp cams are the bomb.

We were talking about your car a little while ago...and not sure what happened to that thread. But I think it would be more telling about the usable power from your engine if you could post up some lap times. Maybe even some 1/4 passes?

I was just suggesting the 1/4 mile for trap speeds...nothing else. Trap speeds are a reasonable gauge of actual power, since that was part of the discussion in the other thread. I've been wanting to see your car run on a road course for a while now...
