+fuel consumption with new cam?

Got an AU1 & just got a cam put in and have noticed the car drinking more petrol! Is that normal?

yeh the cam will drink better on the freeway but around the city and normal street driving it does drink a fair bit more. i have the crow stage 2 cam and on the highway it gets 650-700km just highway driving and around the city bout 350-400 depending how i drive it

So with a free flowing exhaust I thought it'll even itself out?

My ED went from something like 480 std to about 500 or maybe 520 with Crow 222825 cam (EDXR6 ECU) then up to something like 550 with EFXR6 head and EFXR6 cam (EDXR6 ECU) - and then with JMM cam it's improved to about 600 round town and 630 or so on the highway - plus it goes like buggery.

That's all using std ULP.

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