VX Commodore V6 L36 Standard, 2 1/2' exhaust.
I dident want to start a new thread, But i couldent find the answer's any other way
The reason for the below is comming from a VP, Great reasonable power..The Ecotec is sad, It's almost dangerous.
I have been contemplating getting high ratio rockers for a wile...
Then i thought, Why cheap out on work?, I may as well go all out and get a cam...Fit it myself,I know how to fit them but thats all.
I dont know much about preformace cam's, Only how to fit them.
So for the past week i'v been reading up on cam's, Some say it's worth it some say there a waste of money.
Im not up for all out power, I just need more torque, You know, Pulling out of roundabout's, Getting up to speed, Overtaking, Get that nice power feel.
But as far as i see it, It's far better going with a cam over rocker's if you dont mind the extra work fitting it.
I need down low - Mid range torque, Any extra is a bonus.
I'v been looking on the MACE site at the stage 2 cam (216°/216° at .050"), It sais it's good for street, And you dont really need a hopped up engine to start with.
So what should i look for? It's a completly stock VY engine, Will a cam give me the extra down low - Mid torque that im after? Or should i just go back to high ratio rockers?
Will a cam work with a standard engine? I don't feel the need to spend heap's. If i dont have too!!
I just want to spend a one off payment on a decent power increase, I dont want to have to keep spening money. Thats why i thought cam
I am saving for a house deposit, So i thought, Get a cam, Better than HRR and still require more power.
Will the cam work ok with standard trans?
Get the cam, Install it, Get a mail order tune?? Or can the tune wait? Or is it 100% required right away?
Can the VX ECU be tuned for the new cam thrugh mail order? What's the approx cost of the tune??
Sorry, I have searched and serched but noting relating to a standard engine VX ECU
Just want to make sure of a few thing's before purchace.
Oh, The stage 2 (on mace site) be the best bet? Without having to go overboard in preformace part's?
