Just Some PW Q's

I'm planning to get my hands on a PowerWorks sc in the near future but i have a cuple of questions.

Is the PW good for long drives. I'm also looking into taking a road trip after the install (if i'm lucky) but i don't want to take the car with the PW if it's not safe to do so.

Also, Is it possible to use / combine stage 2 cams and adjustable cam sprokets?


Thanks for the help in advance!

No issues with driving long trips as long as you keep 91 or better gas in it. Our cars have travelled across country regularly for sales calls/demo drives.

Stage 2 cams aren't ideal for a s/c, but the car will run. You will probably have better performance with the stock cams though. Adj. cam gears are fine no matter what cams you use.

The PW reflash calibration is only optimized for a stock engine though. Any other cams or cam gear alterations would need to be optimized with a tune and dyno time.
