    WSM 248 cam installed today. Achieved exactly the numbers expected. Appreciate all the advice from Monstar, et al.

    Saved me $2500 over a W407 kit, achieved 440rwhp, which is 410-engine kilowatts, after a 25% automatic loss conversion.

    I’ll find out for you. I don’t know it off by heart...

    I basically asked for a cam that wouldn’t surge or need a stall converter.

    That was also a good cam for the up-conversion to supercharged.

    Apparently the WSM 248 is the formula.

    I’m looking at ‘SAUCY V8’ or ‘NICE V8’, or ‘GRRR V8’.

    Nothing. Not into personalised plates. Random content is just fine .

    Personal plates are a personal thing. I don’t mind them but only problem with a car u may drive hard on occasion it becomes more rememberable for others who don’t enjoy your exploits. Especially in a smaller town.

    Man if u wanna get some go for it don’t let others dissuade u

    I love the torque, can feel big difference. Awesome.

    The pant at idle is really good.

    First impressions: on the way home, the fuel economy is showing 2L/100km higher in just about every gear, situation (was expected). The take off is a tad better, then really comes alive about 3,000rpm, where it becomes animal....chirps and steps out hard. Driving up the Toowoomba range, at 60kph and then into an 80-zone, dumped from 6th to 4th and chirped hard again. Nice.

    Only thing I seemed to lose in the tune, was the nice little throttle blips on down change, they've been tuned out...because they're no longer there.

    It idles very nicely, has more cologne to it now at idle (mmmm..motor spirit!) and will have a tad more presence...I'm hoping.

    What fuel usage are you getting? Mine since the W557 package is bad, jumped about 8L/100km from stock. Going in again tomorrow for some data logging. Open road it is good but in the city bad. Car is running awesome just the fuel usage should be around 20l/100km with the package I am told, but it is sitting about 28l.
