    263 Cams and Remap opinions please

    I am looking for a variety of opinions into those that have these cams in their VR6s following the group buy and any others who have them from before..

    What are the cams like on their own? anyone ran cams and then had a map to follow, much change? how does it affect the petrol consumption? anyone got cams, map and a VSR/schrick?

    You get the idea, any opinions or info and any dyno figures would be good...

    And a number of breakers..

    Phone Vince at stealth and have a chat with him, what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing.

    I ran my VR6 with the cams by themselves for about 6 months before getting a remap done and the difference was immediately obvious. Much more urgency lower down in the rev range and just a much more complete feeling package. You would notice a good improvement with the cams by themselves but the remap gave, at least, the same improvement again as going from standard to having the cams fitted.. if that makes sense?

    Can't speak for the dyno - my figures were schitt for some reason!

    Interesting stuff.. Ive no doubt about what Vince knows..

    I suppose its the real differences I'm after, if that makes sense..

    I know the dyne figures aren't that relevant but we all want a good score..

    I do like the noise from the BMC but ill be keeping a standard air box.

    If anything i might be map first then cams although i will try and get the cams in shortly after.. Loads of time, just interested in opinions..

    Did you see my comments on the latest group buy thread?
    With a Schrick VSR and 263 cams I gained ~7-10 lbft across the entire rev range by having another map done. (The car was previously mapped for the Shrick VSR only.)

    Would you not want a map to suit the cams?

    Loads of info on the original 263 threads including Schrick, Mapped, Unmapped, FI........ I got a very healthy improvement in power & torque - the curves were the same profile with increased figures. I had cams & map at same time.
    95 Mystic Blue Storm - It's bound to cause disappointment.

    The map I'm getting is to suit the cams.. I just wanted to know if it was needed that the car would run well until a time i get the cams in..
