Nick was selling or is selling the adj cam gears. Cams have alot of theories floating around, but nothing really solid.

Read some of Genuinesaab's posts I think some info from an actual test was in there.

why were you thinking of cams?
best bang for your buck will probably be a staged package of 3" DP/ catback, race cat, intake/sport filter, bigger better cooling IC, and matching ECU.
after that you gotta pay to play.

look at the staged packages for maptun, they have on their website packages that include cams, you can see that after stage 3 or 4 you need to start doing more seriious engine work to get more power. and after a certain point, you are just gonna toast transmissions anyways

The talk of cams was more along the lines of moving from T7 cams (if your car is T7 to T5 cams...which would free up a bit of power up top while sacrificing peak torque to be about 300rpm later...unless your already at a stage 3 or higher there is not much use for upgraded cams as these gents have said...
