    Sam's Performance = rich as F$%k too - came out of there using 25L a 100 with a tiny cam and stalling at idle in a manual.........back 3 times and "you have to expect that with a cam"......ahm NO!!!

    There's a muppet in the Hunter that's not much better either.

    Probably the problem with mine. It's back at the tuner now getting sorted. it's got a mild cam and a magnuson 2300. (assuming cam is VCM15). Like Ozturtle's it surges when you're just about to stop, stinks of fuel at idle, and when crawling in traffic nearly stalls when changing up gears (amongst all the other issues). Right now it's a dog to drive. Hopefully it'll be sorted when i get it back.

    My "courtesy car" is my boss's cammed, Harrop enhanced GTS. This one was done by another tuner. The difference in manners and drivability is night and day

    Any idea of cam specs?

    Does it have a choppy idle?

    I'm new at this so it might post twice.

    I don't know much about cars so I couldn't tell you any specs. But mario from walkinshaw told me it has 420 KW and 698 NM. As for the lumpy you can definitely here it when the car is in neutral.

    Hey Hob,
    Seeing you're in Melbourne, if you head down/up to SNL let me know, wouldn't mind having a look and listen.

    What's SNL?? I can try to take a video of it but you'll won't here it properly... Mario from walkinshaw said he is going to post some pictures and video as I was the first in Australia to get the 407 package.

    Who did the work Pete - seems like everyone gets screwed at least the first few times until we uncover a shop that perhaps has an idea what they are doing. The tune either makes or breaks a package and the tune is what lets 99% of them down. We should start a new thread called Tuning - The Good, the Bad and The downright Ugly - might help people identify places to go/not go......

    SNL=Saturday Night Live.
    A huge car meet every Saturday night with everything from old school Chevys to new school Lambo's, with the weather improving numbers are growing to the point of nearly 700 cars a couple of weeks ago.
    The main 1 is at BP, Eastlink inbound (just near Ferntree Gully Rd.), another smaller 1 is on Peninsula Link outbound, both are great with no trouble and respectable people who just love cars.

    Hey Foggsy;
    99% sure Hob had it done at Horsepower Factory in Dandenong, it's where Mario works from. I think the only other authorised Walkinshaw dealer in Melbourne is Geelong Performance Centre, but could be wrong.

    Just rang my local Walkinshaw dealer. Quoted $10990 for full W407 pack and $5850 for upgrade from W375 with new lifters.

    So on top of the W375, they want nearly 6 grand for a new cam, lifters, and a tune ?

    Or in simpler terms, 6 grand for an extra 32kw...

    That's it at the end of the day. This is why after an OTR & tune, I can't bring myself to spend anymore $$.

    If this package appeals to you, I suggest the purchase of a nice LSA clubsport.
