    This all looks really cool and great info. Really want to do this too but sadly at nearly 50 am thinking I am getting to old to use it properly.

    My age and the fact that I think I'm to old to be further modifying my ride. Completely off topic sorry.

    It'd reduce the amount of interested buyers compared to a standard one. Sure there are many who look at buying a car with mods already done, but if its still within the warranty period people will be concerned that the mods could negate the warranty if anything went bang, plus they'd wonder how the car was treated seeing as a cam is a performance mod, therefore you'd be enjoying the newly found power.

    If you're thinking about resale 5 to 10 years down the track, I don't think it'd be too much of a worry. There's heaps of modded Commodores for sale at the moment with similar prices to standard ones

    I think it will help resale, the cam sound is a sales pitch , some people fall in love with a car, minute they hear the cammed idle.

    So, picked up my Redline today and official figures are 336RWKW and 580NM. They recommend to take it easy for a couple of hundred k's, then should all be sweet. Has a very minor "surge" when coming to a stop, but nothing over the top, and it's like a completely different transmission after the tune. More willing to drop back gears in drive, and holds them longer when accelerating. I'm still trying to work out how to post pics, not sure if it's an Apple issue, or me being a dumb ass but can't get anything to load! Think I'll follow flo rida's methodology and post a YouTube link once I get them up, as I'd like some feedback on the dyno run, torque drops around 3800RPM before climbing again at 4000.

    Keep your receipts.

    If I were buying I'd definitely want to see if it was done by a professional mob or a backyard mechanic.

    Very cool! Photo bucket is a good site to upload photos then click on the pick go to the info icon then click the IMG code. Past direct into your post. I have never successfully embedded a video on this site...

    Hey Jarp
    It think the 580NM would have been measured at the max kilowatt reading and I'd suspect it would be a higher reading at lower revs. Considering it looks like we've both used the same cam profile in the same engine my max torque was 766NM @ 4533rpm and about 580 I think at 5800 rpm. So are you enjoying the car after the Harrop makeover?

    Nothing to compare against. You need before and after to see the changes. The total figure doesnt matter, its the gains and where in the rev range they are that is important. Descent tuners give stock and modded. or before changes and after changes.

    Here is before and after valve spring change.
