XR6 Cam info

Just wondering how much difference and xr6 cam will make to my engine, I know that if i want some noticable power increase i will need something better than a standard cam. I am looking to get a whole head to rebuild (with a mild port and better cam). My car has a stock standard falcon 4.0l 6 (ed engine) and I have just put gas on it and i am a bit pissed off with the reduction in power.

I am not trying to build a race car or anything, just want a bit more power, so im trying to do this to a budget.

Re: XR6 Cam info

Probably want to look at a gas cam then.

Mate to get the best out of an XR6 cam, you would really need to get the head ported a bit, and get the compression bumped up.

Re: XR6 Cam info

I will probably be buying a second hand head for the job, an getting it a mild port, deck it, maybe new valve springs and definitely rebuild the lifters. Also when I put it on I will be using the au gasket (I have heard this is is possible - do I have to modify it in any way?). If I do buy a different head will any of the newer heads need any modification to bolt them on? Also what head bolts should i get, Should I be using TTY bolts or should i get some high tensile normal bolts?

Re: XR6 Cam info

You can use the AU gasket.
I wouldn't bother with the springs unless I was going an extremely lumpy cam.
It'll bolt straight on provided it's pre-BA. As to bolts, it uses TTY bolts anyway, don't make the mistake of trying to reuse them - it rarely works.
