Did you get the cams because you had excessive HLA noise Rufnek? Someone I know needed to have the cams replaced on their old mercedes and he had the engine shipped to the states to have the work done. Even with the extra shipping charges he still maintained that it was cheaper than having it done over hear since there isn't as many shops in the business over here as in the states.

How much did you pay for them Rufnek69???

And how much is Aspec going to charge you for the whole installation?

10-15 hp sounds like a good boost!!!

welp

Im hoping the boost will be highly noticable to my ass dyno :)

I paid three bills for the cams.. I donty want to say what Aspec is charging me for the install, because he is gonna give me an excellent deal!! because he has done and will be doing alot more work for me in the future :)

Im counting the days till I get them thrown in... Then I will probably sell my stock cams, for someone who might want to get a regrind :)

Dear ol' rufnek, 10-15HP from cams that aren't even that more aggressive then 03's? sorry bro, you're looking at around 5-6WHP which is a considerable boost on the 03 motor considering NOTHING gives us a good gain minus FI/Nitrous Oxide.

But for the price that you got them I am SERIOUSLY jealous! @- :D

Ok well here is something to think about.. the ZE makes around 30 more HP (not wheel). And the major differences are, different pistons (10:1 compressions), Intake Manifold, Cams, Jap Spec ECU and some other minor goodies. Now all that stuff has to make up 30HP, so for the cams alone to make 15HP, everything else seems so little. The higher compression is a good gain and the intake manifold alone is suppose to flow WAY better then an 03 mani. So ya :)

WoOHoO!

I dropped off my car last night at a-spec, and hopefully will be picking it up tonight after work!! I cant wait...
Steve mentioned something intresting about engine noise.. anyone know about this?

Apparently there are three different things that cause noises in our engines... HLA tick, carbon knock, and something that has to do with these little rings that go on the ends of the cam shafts.. the updated ones have a little groove, that allows them to stay in place,.. however if you dont have the updated rings, then you get a ticking... hes gonna replace those for me too if need be..
I will let you all know how the cams are sometime tonight!! WoOHoO!!!!

As far as i know, its underneath the valve cover, so u might as well replace the front and rear VC gaskets anyways.
