      Added some more info about intake charge that should be taken into account when selecting cams.

      x2.. Dont get me wrong .. Huge cams are nice.. i doubt the head is efficient where the cam is designed to make power..

      Theory shmeary. Big cams don't work on a turbo car either, right? I've seen 160whp aba graphs out of this cam. I'm buying one.

      did you get any clearance problem with the cam ? after seeing this video i am guessing you had to modify lifter holes ??

    6. 11-21-2011 04:33 PM #41
      sorry havent been here too often lately,

      I had to get the lifter bores cleared for the bigger cam.

      No numbers yet and probably wont ever get any since im going VRt this winter

      deffinitly pulled A LOT more than the 288. ill try to post a video soon.

      I was running a custom short runner with a VR throttle body.

      I recently picked up a set of Wiseco 13.4:1 8v pistons for the 1.8 block, and started wondering what this cam would be like on a high comp 8v. So tempted...

      If i can ever get my haltech working right, i might be able to find a day to put this cam in my car. I'm a little worried about drivability. Should i be?

      So that is why you were selling the 276.

      Was temped to get it, kinda regret selling the one I had.
