    263 cams + remap or stainless exhaust

    Hi all,

    First world dilemma.

    Car is in for some work - chains, head refurb, clutch and a load of other refreshment with brakes, abs pump and bushes.

    Originally thought I'd add a miltek system to the job list if nothing else major crops up. However when I dropped it off the idea of 263 cams and a remap was dropped in my ear, since the labour on fitting will be included in the other work.

    I think I'll be in the position where I'll only be able to afford one or the other.. What would you go for?

    I'm told and have read the 263s will increase midrange punch which is my driving style. However I think a nice exhaust note would be satisfying. I could add the exhaust at later date though.

    Cheers

    Whilst mulling this over in my head and I'll chat with Vince next week anyway to see what's possible, but guessing I could get the cams fitted and wait on having the remap until the exhaust is fitted later. I'm guessing the remap needs to happen with the car in its "final" state with all engine mods done (at this stage anyway) so not worth remapping till exhaust is fitted. There isn't anyhting wrong with the standard system mechanically.

    Getting the cams done while it’s in bits is a no brainer, no point pulling it down again later. The exhaust is just a bolt on and can be done at any time when funds allow.

    Cheers tonedef, yep that is the way to do it. I wanted the exhaust but that will have to be de-prioitised if need be.

    Assume I can run 263s on the standard map and I think I need to wait for mapping until exhaust is fitted or doesn't it not matter? Would rather not have to get it mapped twice!

    I ran my Schrick 268s and inlet manifold with OBD1 ECU and have since run the same cams with standard inlet manifold and OBD2 ECU without remapping either. You might not be getting the absolute best out of the cams but they should be fine to run on until you get the exhaust and a remap done.

    Think they go from anything between 1k- 1.5 , however someone might pay more as they dont often come on the market . This one looks a bit tatty and the shtick emblem is missing and also cannot see the auxiliary parts that should come with it .

    Schricks went for between £6-900 around 5 years ago. That was WVM VSR money at the time!
