which cam??? is the jury still out

which way should i go??? i have a crow stage 2, should i get a crow stage 3 or go to wade/surecam and get a regrind for my xh ute.

the car has pacemakers etc and the crow stage 2 goes pretty good but as usual i want more power and a bigger cam profile.

has a verdict been reached on these cams????

any specs would be good also

cheers

Re: which cam??? is the jury still out

im pretty sure that the stage 3 cam only works with a chip - at least 3 guys on here have fitted that cam and had head work done, and lost power, then had to buy a chip to get it back.

GO TO SURECAM DAMMIT!!!

Re: which cam??? is the jury still out

JMM Dev3HL will give abot 140-150 rwkw with std ecu.

The JMM cams are not cheap but neither is replacing the computer.

Its worth a thought. check out SOXX's posts

Re: which cam??? is the jury still out

Got the DEV 5 which needs porting etc but 170+rwkw for 4900

(thats total price including exhaust, air box etc) and no chip!!!!
Chip her up for around 175+rwkw

But if cheap and easy with no porting I still think the DEV 3HL is awesome value cause you may even get ova 150rwkw if your engine is a happy one
