Default New cam

Whew, just got my new cam installed (59300)and man is that thing loud. Sounds like the valves are gonna rattle out of there. The lash is in spec so I guess it just sounds like that. The idle is smooth though.

Butt dyno says it's making power right from off idle. Really smooth acceleration.

Installed my new turbo today too. It's a rebuilt, ported and polished 14b. Same turbo that I was running but with the little extras. It spools a little faster and hopefully won't be leaking oil like my other one. It had 170k on it so it was overdue for a rebuild.

Anyway, probably make it to ther track this friday so we'll see what's up.

wow, new cam and new turbo, sounds like a good upgrade. how aggressive is the cam since your idle is really smooth as well as engagement?

It's as aggresive as you want to get with FI. It'sa Street/Strip cam. Not for the fainthearted because unless you know what you are hearing,people will think something is wrong with your car.

It's this one.

At least some pictures. You usually take pictures when installing something new.
