about 18 more bhp more with uprated exhaust manifold + decat, u say piper cams though?! there is only 1 cam in an 8v. 1 cam, 8 followers, 8 lifters and 8 shims, a good cam kit will include the whole lot!

and yes it will increase top speed and rev-ability, after a good tune up of course

it will NOT increase the top speed really.... unless you raise the rev limit.

To get the :.18bhp you'd ideally need some mapping too

i suppose it wont give any more top speed, though even without a cam, just a 4 branch, gas flowed and skimmed head my sri did 120 stripped out too. im sure with a cam she would have hit the limiter in 5th, giving about 130mph like my mates sri nova did, his nova was on standard ecu.

the lockwood dials are only a cover you still need the actual working dials for them to go over
