both ideally, but even leaving most of the weight in, it still shifts.

I'll put a spec up later

'51 172 FF
Matched inlets
ITG Panel filter, standard airbox
we believe it has some sort of aftermarket cam, but I have no paper-work to confirm so only way to tell is open it up....which we've not yet got round to doing
4-2-1 manifold
K-Tec Stealth full system with sports cat
Speedline 2118's on Toyo Proxies T1-S
FK Highsport Coilovers
Norledge Motorsport bodgineered exhaust mount

think thats it, I'm sure there's more I cant remember off the top of my head

to be honest, I do type rediculously fast.

However, even I must say, they are essays of an epic scale

surprised there's no receipt to be honest, the previous owner knows nowt about them, only that it's a little more lumpy at idle than standard (even standard, they don't quite idle right)

would explain the kick at 5k though

But to run an aftermarket cam of any caliber and to recieve a decent gain you would surely need a remap ? I doubt you'd get any gain without a remap, infact you'd probably loose power..

As long as the cams arent tooo extream they'll run within the confinds of a standard map no problem.

I'll bring the camera tomorrow and we'll get the pics up
