The cams where the issue, it now idles fine and is making good power .
Now the TUNER WANTS 5k For the work completed. GET FKED!

|spc_fruit||Yes well here is hoping that the car responds well and idles - not to mention makes more power.|

It can still run and not hurt a thing if the gears are off it will just be sluggish , If it is off far enough for low vac and wont idle the shop should of cought that right away as you would be a dog and take for ever to go up in RPM

this is 100% correct - which is why im scratching my head wondering what the hell is going on. If the cams where that bad - then i should of bent a rod or blown the engine.
I got him to perform a compression check to make sure its still providing correct Compression.

|Djzx3||Correct me if I'm wrong, but with cam gear timing, if it's off too much can't it cause detonation, and damage the motor? Especially if it's supercharger?|

Car Demon - Yes i have an Xcal3 - problem is the car is with the tuner - some good 45 min away by taxi - i dont have means of getting there.
thanks sleepyboy - Yer well there are just some people that just dont listen huh.
Dont worry - ive asked for a final dyno print out of the car when he finnishes with it.
Yer you and everyone else - BF MK2 Falcon XR6T's are cheap now - phase 3 tune = 360+ RWKW........every dog and his mother has them.
You want class - FG F6 !

yeah the cams are super easy to get out of time. Heck even from the factory they can bee off a little, this is why some zetecs are more powerful than others.
And holy cow that's expensive for a tune. When I got my cams dyno tuned, I TOLD them I want a print out for each run. And that's exactly what I got. Well hopfully you'll get it all figured out. Of course if I lived where you do I'd probably be driving a Falcon for sure, if I could afford I'm sure lol

|CarDemon||Do you have the XCal or does your tuner? Because you can run datalogs yourself with the XCal by downloading the LiveLink software from SCT.|

Mech checked the cams - apparently they wherent lined up AT all.
so he is "fixing" it now.
Hopefully this gets me to over 130fkw and idling.
|03-09-2011 10:03 AM|
yes well telling him and getting what i want are always two different things.
I will ask again today...no i will tell him to get me one today.
To be really honest with you i hope he cant tune it - that way i forgo paying him the $1800 for the tune and pay Tom the $550!
