No you don't need computer mods, but it will help.
Quite a few people on the site have it, mixed opinions, usually good though.

Use it with a good exhaust system, and I reckon you will love it.

Yer, that would work VERY nicely. The stage 2 Crow cam is brilliant. I got one in my car (5 spd MPI EA with other engine mods) and it goes great. A mate of mine has it in his EA (Auto, CFI with cat-back exhaust) and it even goes really well with that! It gives a LOT more torque across the entire rev range (particularly low-mid range) and makes the car much more enjoyable to drive.

The only drawback is, they seem to have a tendancy to run a bit rich.

What sort of fuel consumption is expected after a crow stage 2 is installed?

Standard six does around 9 freeway and 12 city (according to the trip comp)

Well, I drive pretty hard (ok, ok, VERY hard!!!), so my trip computer is telling me 14.6 at the moment.

easier to fry the tyres?

Also - is the idle lumpy?

Also - is there a web site?

Also - can my performance mechanic just drop one straight in for me?

I will answer your questions according to what I noticed when I went for a ride in Thanatos' car.

idle was a little lumpy, but not harsh, I reckon it makes the car sound mean, and yes, there was no problem lighting up the rears.

EA cams are easy to change, and would not take more then an hour to do.

Any mechanic will be able to install it for you, however, if you want iot fine tuned for maximum gain, then you might need to invest in a variable cam gear, and have it dyno tuned.

Crow or XR cam?

Hey guyz, is there a big difference between the crow cam (stg2) and the XR6 cam? What are the main differences?

Thanx
