Default What cams and spring/retainer/valves are you guys running ?

hullo all...

its been far too long of a stock engine ive been running ~ its a d16a8 in a 92 EG5 HB (stock here in Oz). Ive got a plethora or suspension work and the thing handles like a cat on carpet. But it just lacks any "go" from 3rd gear onwards.

What camshaft combos are you guys running on the street , and making decent numbers ? my car is 100hp-ish atw stock. Im looking for a increase at 50% throttle and lower to midrange indeed

Fire away...

I know crespo make higher lift spring that are steel. JG makes dual spring and retainers that are titanium. Group buy on those her http://www.thezcr.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12664

Like you said good on 1 thru 3 and a bit into 4 is what I get. I'm boostin the motor right now. Best hp to dollar ratio for top end power imo.

Turbo is the only way you're going to see a 50% increase in power unless you have a shit ton of money to dump into an N/A build.
