Hi guys,
before I go getting rid of these, here's what I have to play with for my Turbo3: Econo Cam & +8 & + 6 sprockets

What would happen if I put this cam and either of these sprockets in my G10T? Or if I slapped a +6 sprocket on a factory cam for my G10t?

Thanks :wink: ,

Ken

Not sure of the Turbo3 aspect but on most NA G10s the power band lowers and gas mileage can improve up to 6 mpg. That's "econo" and +10 cam gear. Most users advance the timing to 10+ BTDC.

That said my wife's '96 likes 8-10 BTDC and she still shifts at 3K but can drive with power down to 1500. Hope that helps.

EconoCam + Turbo = No No

Suprfly told me, they say the worst cam for the T3 is the stock one, but really the EconoCam is the worst.

So the guy who grinds the cams really does not reccomend it.
