    Hi Everyone,

    Some of you already know the good news but for those who do not we have had another VF Commodore here in AUS install and tune these cams from the team @ MACE Engineering and we are happy to share the positive results with you.

    This particular vehicle started off with ~190rwkw and finished with ~250 by the time the cams had been installed and tuned along with a new OTR style intake

    We are all very happy with the results as this is the second car with the same setup and tune performed by SVS Auto & Dyno which just proves that these engines with the cams Supplied by MACE Engineering are truly capable of big gains and exciting driving.

    Cheers Dan

    Not bad for a little V6.

    I know Steve @ MACE has put a lot of effort into getting these cams sorted. Good to see the results have justified the effort.

    How do these compare when driven on a daily basis?

    What software package are you using to tune these?

    I agree, fantastic result!

    Just hope we don't get too many p-platers pulling themselves over it!

    250rwkw's from a V6 or a V8 is 250rwkw's, no need to bring that sort of negativity to this thread, that **** is not needed.

    Stop whining, I mean because they can get away with driving it because its an SV6 not an SS. 250rwkws from an SV6 is a fantastic result, maybe you should have put that in bold.

    christov, what exactly were you meaning by "Just hope we don't get too many p-platers pulling themselves over it!".

    Whoops I've got it now...
    One to many beers. Can't P platers drive V8's or is that just some turbo cars?

    The lovely law enforcement have stopped p-platers driving V8s a while back now, same as all cars that make over 130kw/tonne I think.

    It most places they cant enhance the engine power either. So its really just as illegal.

    Any HWY Patrol that isnt brain dead will be able to spot a cammed Commodore a mile away.

    You must be happy with the end result danthuyer. I would be.

    killabob - its on the Facebook page
    SVS Auto and Dyno - Cams and tune $3600. To get this result you'll need a decent exhaust and an Orssom OTR INTAKE.

    Good result for the cost, I just wonder if fuel consumption suffers a lot with these cams...

    Even an exhaust is illegal for a P plater in Victoria.

    I'm amazed Victoria haven't just banned all drivers - pricks that they are.

    It's probably not as noticeable as a cammed V8, the V6's use a quad cams with variable cam timing so at idle they should sound very docile if tuned right.

    Regardless, any mods are illegal as you mentioned.

    And, sometimes I wonder about cops, i've come across more than a few who really don't understand cars and modifications. They don't have to, the way the law works is they ticket you and you have to prove your mods are legal at your cost. System is designed to revenue gather. Truth and what's right/wrong doesn't really seem to matter.

    BTW I am no Dyno queen ...far from it

    Yes there will be a new time slip soon ........ the car had only completed its initial power and road tune on Friday so be patient

    The clutch is currently getting upgraded as the factory one snaps open above 7000RPM and stays there :(

    Peak power now produced at more than 1000rpm higher than stock, seems about right.

    That said with such a high increase in engine speed to produce such high peak power the gain in bottom-mid range torque would be pretty minor, making it not very useable everyday. But I haven't driven the car or tuned it or dynod it so that's all theoretical.

    After all, Power (kW) = Torque (N.m) x Speed (RPM) / 9.5488.
