Re: Cam help

But since I have a computer don't have to have a cam that's computer capable? I don't want to buy a cam then it won't work right

Well, you couldn't go to wild with the cam or the factory ECU tune might have difficulty adjusting to it, but if you get what your engine can handle you will be ok.

Every car is different in needing a tune also. I know you needed a tune but a 93 is more forgiving than a 94 ecu. But its still possible that he does. I do know a lot of guys get away without it.

And it would be a good idea to check piston to make sure it works.

Now I was told (correct me if I'm wrong) that a CAM that has a Lobe Separation that is close to stock which is 116 degree lobe, will work better with your stock ecu?

That's probably correct.


I can understand how it would be easier for the ECU to adjust the tune for it.

Stock is 112* lsa, anywhere between 108-116 is recommended for cars with ecu's. Higher number being easier on the ecu.

Since there isn't any ecam love so far, here's my e303. I do have a tune on in the video, it's lumpier without it. May shoot another one with it off.

That sounds good. It actually sounds more lumpy than my buddies 351 does.

It looks like we might be in need of a cam sound thread, like the exhaust threads.lol

I am in the process of setting up my exhaust for cutouts so the mid pipe is disconnected from the down pipes right now. I love hearing each side pop on each side vs through a crossover mid pipe.

Thanks, I realized a while back that I could change how it loped with a turn of the switch, still has a hint of the intended lope if you listen carefully.

Yes the chip, the lope changes with the timing and idle. So if I set it one way I can have the classic e303 lope, or change the timing and idle and it sounds a little more choppy like in the video.

Nice. Mine will lope a lot more once the idle kicks down. When I first start it its more around 8-900 then it will kick down to about 600 when its warm. It sounds pretty good at 600. But that's the lowest I want to take the idle to because when I go lower it stumbles a little bit when I let off and push in the clutch after a good romp.
