    They push push the power band further up the rev range, and will no doubt compress it too - ie the power will come in at higher revs.

    Power gain will depend on which ones you gor for. Fast road should see about 8-10bhp. anything wilder than those in a road car will make it a ballache to live with day to day

    that depends on if you want regrinds or new blanks - regrinds will be your existing cams reprofiled (or spare ones), and new blanks are ground from...well.. new blanks

    Regrinds will be about £250 for the pair, new blanks are usually around £400-500ish.
