    cheers
    My mate has this cam in his VZ SS M6 with the L76 6 litre, along with Higgins cnc heads and 3.9 diff gears making 342rwkw. The top end (say between 5000-7000rpm) is really strong, however under that its a big of a slug.

    I have a cam only VZ Clubby R8 M6 with a 224/230 cam making 292rwkw and we've had a few races at the track and he cant catch me until about 170km/h (which is pretty useless). I chose a smaller cam for heaps of low down/mid range torque which is where I pull away from my mates SS, and the other benefits are good driveability with half decent economy (still getting 470-520km to a tank). The choice is yours but id go a smaller cam any day unless you're at the track every weekend chasing numbers.

    I would leave it stock bar exhaust/intake/cam mods. But thats just me.

    I agree. This is exactly what I've done

    yeah, doing anymore on these just de-vaules them. Even the cam is questionable.

    Ask yourself if you were to buy a early HSV from VN-VR say, would you want it stock or modified? It will be the same with these, so unless you constantly track your car etc. best to leave these stock. (lol i must be getting old, but from experience i now wouldn't do otherwise....)

    Bolt a blower on. Very easy to revert back to stock with no sign it was ever there
