The 2040 from memory is Cranes version of SVO's E303 cam 498 lift and 220/220 @50 and 110*Imo the 2030 is better, more lift and wider lobe centres ...
The split cams are better...

Re: Camshaft selection?!?!

Actually the correct maf and injectors you may not need unichip..

Re: Camshaft selection?!?!

Your Stock AU ones will be fine for your mods. You only really have to go to the 30lb ones if you supercharge or turbo the engine.

But you should be prepared to get one if necessary. With my car, the factory computer was running the engine way too rich which dulled performance and made the car altogether unpleasant. So I had a Unichip installed and tuned.

The result? Power and throttle response improved whilst the fuel consumption and emissions went down.

I am assuming you have the factory 24lb injectors (blue) already so there should be no need to change these (or the MAF sensor) if you are just installing this camshaft.

Re: Camshaft selection?!?!

So the Maf is of sufficient size to flow for the power req'd? I assume that my comp will struggle to cope and the 20 odd kw the unichip got for you with the cam is great value in any case!!! Can't wait to get the cam and comp changed, with all the other work it has it's been asking for a cam for months and months! Any ideas on cost and who is good to use in qld on the sunshine coast or bris. i would do it myself but apartment living leaves alot to be desired garage wise.

Re: Camshaft selection?!?!

You can use Bob Romano in morniside or I think Redcliff Dyno do unichips as well, there is another place as well but it is a little further down, on the Goldie.
