    Thumbs Up

    Well. Sports Cams come with different angles so that they can produce more power at the top end. Going for high top end figures (usually for track a car) will reduce the torque and BHP figures at lower revs! Which i'm my view are important. I went for Courtenay they offered reasonable figures with smoother usuable power.

    I'm really happy with them. As soon as they get to 3500r.p.m the needle just drops. It's important that you have the car well maintained and a large bore sports exhaust (2.5inch) so that the cams can process all the air they can.

    Hope this has helped .
