Hi guy, if you are going to be using 10mm lift cams you should also get some solid lifters the standard hydraulic won't work to good with them and i think in some cases you have to shave the head where the cam lobs would travel or they touch, now to correct you they are only 360 degrees in a duration. <p></p><i></i>

You mean 298 º ? Man that's wild. You can keep the SSGTi chip but if you want to get the most out of those cams I would go for some sidedraft carbies or a specific chip with larger injectors. Besides modifying the lifters and valve springs, you will also have to port head, intake, custom header, 2.25" exhaust.<br> <p></p><i></i>

Hey I have a guy making custom grinds for me right now. I would go with the list of mods caaarlo told you but I would also add the Nissan 55mm tb and a ford 2.3l MAF. If you get the TB make sure to bore out the inlet on the intake manifold as it's not big enough. My Brother runs cams with a crazy profile and has done these mods, and the car is untouchable from 4000rpm to 9000rpm.<br><br>Jake <p></p><i></i>

Hope you don't do any driving below about 5000rpm - you'll have no power....<br><br>For the most performance, I'd be looking at Quad TB's and an aftermarket ECU...we have about 15 or 20 on the market here in Australia. <p></p><i></i>

Hi have the same cams on my racing swift. You will need to convert to solid lifters and also you will need to change the valve springs.<br><br>For engine management I don't think the chip will do the job. You also will need more air, meaning bigger MAF and TB.<br><br>My engine has a twin weber 45mm dcoe setup with a electromotive HPX for ignition. The cars is a beast from 5,500 rpm to 9,000 rpm.<br><br>I still need to tune the webers and also adjust the cams. I'm currently installing the Rospen Close Ratio gear kit.<br><br>Bolivar <p></p><i></i>

Actually the power below 5000rpm is still impressive but the power comes on very strong at 4000rpm and hold you in your seat all the way to 9000rpm. He has done the solid lifter conversion and uses Tom's chip. Low end power is sacrificed a little but makes up for it on the top end. <br>(I would recomend not chewing gum while driving)<br><br>Jake <p></p><i></i>

Bogey11, your car should run fine the way it's set up now. But to Maximize your performance gains from the cams you should consider the TB, MAF and all that stuff......you have the solid lifter conversion right??<br><br>Jake <p></p><i></i>

hmmm<br><br>i hope u realize when u install bigger cams your manifold vacumm will decrease, and the brakes are vacuum assist.<br>ie they need vacuum to work.<br><br>this is y your brakes are stiff.<br><br>I would get a pryo and a air/fuel meter in your car right now.<br>cause if u put anything more then stock cultus cams. your stock computer will not meter fuel correctly, even the chips do not give the engine enuf fuel for stock cams.<br><br>Later<br>Liam<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://groups.msn.com/holyshift/shoebox.msnw?albumlist=2">groups.msn.com/holyshift/...lbumlist=2</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <p></p><i></i>

Your ignition curve will also be all wrong for your cams, as well. <p></p><i></i>

We at ESR would like to add a little something. Chips work well for street cruising and spirited driving. If you have Big cams just change your INJECTORS for more fuel. Dump the stock injectors, there is only so much a stock injector can do.<br><br>ESR <p></p><i></i>
