I've got a JMM camshaft and without making any claims or trying to revive the "debate" on these cams, what I do want to convey is that my cam works very nicely. It showed an immediate and substantial seat-of-the-pants power boost, it's smooth and consistent and feels strong right thru the range. Also go a substantial improvement in fuel economy (about 30km more to a tank - I get about 600/610 km per tank now around town - more of course on long cruises).

IT'LL GO OR IT'LL BLOW!!!

Do tell more, which cam did you get, what else came with it, what other mods do you have, etc etc.
