Crow Stg 2 cam- i can get one for cheap

hey all

Thats right, i can get myself a crow st2 cam for 100 bucks. in a EA Falcon MPI

I just wanna throw it in, no mods to head (at this point), ECU or anything.

bear in mind I have a Phat piece of induction pipe from a high flowing EF airbox...thats the cold air part (works well)

I also have (or soon will) Lukey extractors, 2.5in cat and 2.5in zorst. Extractors will be cut and lengthened


my question is, how well is it going to run with that setup? When should I start looking into playing with the head? The plan is for a EF XR6 head port matched to zorst......and possibly ECU mods.
Hows my fuel consuption going to go?

that cam should go well with your planned mods, and for 100 bucks you cant go wrong! you wont notice the full benefit of the cam until you get your exhaust probably

look at getting the inlet match ported aswell especially if your changing heads.

i have lukey extractors aswell and they're great, whats this about getting then lengthened, was that recomended by an exhaust place or something? might get the same done to mine?

thanks for that fellas.

With regards to the lengthening of the extractors, he cuts them just where it all collects, and puts in a coupla pieces of pipe the same diameter in. Im not sure how longer he makes them, but he reckons it improves the extractors substantially (more for its ability to rev rather than more kw)

I have since been told it helps a little more at top end, rather than down low. With this cam, it should make the old 3.9 get up a hammer when the revs rise yes? note its a 4 speed auto.

Hey Dinga! can you give me some contact details for revheads? I am not in brissy, but this is a lot cheaper than most places I have asked.

yes it should go really well with the cam, and you will get a bigger % power increase when you do get the exhaust, as it will be flowing a lot more air (note, i mean you will still end up with the same end figure, but you will notice the extra power after you get the exhaust)

after you get the engine finished (and a Very big trans cooler as well) it would be benificial to get a slightly higher 'stall' converter to match the power output - it will get off the line much faster.

3500rpm stall??????

hahahaha nah

I got a big trans cooler, but my auto is slowly dying a sorry death anyway. I will either get another one and beef up the line pressure, or do a full fluid flush on mine and see how it comes up. I want a T5 but cant see myself having the money, and I dont really like T5's anyway.

besides, the turbo will need a C4 or toploader :) Or tremec if I win lotto

or sell a kidney

now thats an idea.....:)
