Ok i won't mention any tuning shop or brand but in regards to getting a better cam for the AU XR6 i too am very interested in looking at a better cam profile for mine.
But from my investigations all of the cam upgrades that are available are only for the standard 4.0L engine not the HP engine. I think fitting a cam that is dedsigned for the standard engine would result in a drop of performance for the HP engine.
I have also heard that the cam grind in the HP is as best as it gets in terms of all rev range power. Until i see a cam specifically suited to the AU XR6 HP, personally i won't change cams.
A guarenteed modification to give it a better get up and go without loosing any rev range pull would be to fit a 3.73 diff. Only compromise is at cruise the car would be pulling some 300rpm higher.
