Cam in and EL

Any one had experience putting a cam into an EF/EL. If so did you have any probs with computers/idle etc. What cam is best to use, I cam considering Crow stage 3 - but have been told it will mess up the idle as pretty bad. Another option is the Tickford cam which apparantly doesnt bother the computer/idle too much.

Re: Cam in and EL

If you havn't read this: CAMS, what to get?? then I suggest you do, and if THAT doesn't answer your questions, get a turbo.

Re: Cam in and EL

I've got a stage 2 in the ol' crate with out a computer, and it idles a little lumpy, but I quite like it, and it's definitely not enough to make me spend $1000 on a chip. To start off with it'll be pretty rough, but the computer learns it pretty quick and all will be good. Obviously you'll need a chip to get it running optimally, but until you save up enough money you can still put in the stage 3 cam and have no real dramas, other than obviously lumpy idle, and if you have an exhaust it'll sound real good.

Re: Cam in and EL

Oh and one more thing, I wouldn't bother with the tickford cam, it's like not even a stage 1 of a crow cam for example. As far as I know the ED XR6 cam and the EF/EL cams are like pretty much the same.
