Yes, it does work this way. You are still hanging onto the fact that the cams did not seem to show any increase in power for us, on our applications.
That happens all the time!
Sometimes installing an intake on a stock car will show a 0 HP gain but when chipped it will show massive gains.
Sometimes installing an exhaust on a stock car will show a massive gain but when the turbo or supercharger is maxed out the gains are actually pretty minimal.
Schrick is an OEM parts supplier and a supplier of motorsport parts. They also have an aftermarket catalog of parts available in limited quantities. Most of their aftermarket parts are for race applications. Many of the offerings are cam grinds race teams and OEMs requested to be made knowing schrick would carry the parts in their catalog (unless specified otherwise). Some are rofiles they've made on their own. These are all available to those who would like to use a different profile for whatever they may be doing, and simply put, schrick does not advertise any results anywhere for their FSI cams.
It's possible the cams make power on stock software.
It's possible the cams don't show a difference once everything is maxed out with our stage 3 and 4 turbocharger systems.
It's possible the cams really shine at low boost.
It's possible the cams really shine at super free flowing high boost applications.
All of those things are possible and many more possibilities exist. That said I don't see Schrick making any claims, anywhere. They sell more aggressive profile cams. They don't push the product. It's available for those who want to use it. It's expensive because it's expensive to make.
The one thing that remains true is we did not see a benefit using them with our setup. We DID make one beneficial change to one set, but it's in an area you may not be familiar and I'm not discussing what or where.
The FSI is more than half a decade old at this point and there isn't a single scientific
, back to back, and back again, test showing cams making a difference. Imagine that!
I'm not discussing this topic further.
