A few members have had a varierty of cams fitted.
Personally I wouldn't bother you need other bits to get the best but even with cams head work manifold work remap etc you'll only get about 210hp.
Difference on there own with a remap even with the manifold reworking (about £170) is still only going to see about 195hp or so. Being as good cams are £1.1k or so fiited and remap is £400 or so its not cheap fo the the minimal gains but everyone has there own reaosn/wanting to do different things to cars.
I'm thinking for my next tuning moves and your cams is one of them(other option would be Schrick ones)
I'd like to ask you some questions though...
The setup is: K&N panel+modified airbox,remmap and inlet manifold(when it arrives)
I have a Maxogen in the closet (when I install the inlet,I'll retry the Maxogen,along with a remmap)
If I get the cams(+ a remmap for them),would it be ok for 200bhp ?? How would the torque be ? F.e would it be better accros the whole revs?I'm now at 21,5 kg so after all those would it be at 23 kg ?
I have not touched the exhaust yet;and I'm thinking of getting a decat or a cat(probably the second cause I dont want to have any problems with the MOT) and leaving the middle and back boxes as they are(wouldn't want noice)
the cams used in the 172 and 182's are more wild than say the F7 series engine, so don't expect massive gains as they simply wont produce them. it will still make a notable difference, especially where torque is concerned. worth the money getting a set of BenR's cams, I had his first set for my Williams... amazing is all I can say. He's deffo the man
It doesnt work like that though does it which is the classic mistake made when adding up what bhp you got from your mods
So my exhaust made 5bhp my air filter made 3bhp my remap made 10bhp my cams made 10bhp my inlet made 5bhp my headwork made 8bhp so I gained 41bhp! I now have 221bhp without TBs which everyone knows is not true.
Never make a sum of the parts it wont add up.
I think decent cams and a remap would make around 20 - 25bhp with exhaust, filter, yadder yadder......
I would recommend cams but only if you are keeping the car for a few years you will notice the difference.
i know what you saying mark but the thing is without headwork you have 205 bhp.so exhaust=5,airfilter=3,cams=10,inlet=5 total 23.182+23=205 which you have.as you know that remap doesnt give bhp ,only optimize your mods.for example if you didnt have omex with that mods you would run lean and maybe loose power.when i install my viper first i lost power,after remap unichip i gain more than before.
