New 08+ Cams for focus! Few questions

http://www.massivespeedforums.com/20...hafts-for-200/

Hey, just saw these on Massives Facebook page. Just wondering what everyone thinks, if it is worth it and what type of HP I would get on a N/A, 09focus.

My current mods are Fswerks - Header,Exhaust,CAI, Xcal tune. I called them and they said I could expect around 20whp increase on top of my current mods, with the stage 1 cams. 449$, seems like a good price for that kind of HP gain. Anyone have any thoughts on this, or if that is realistic HP gain?

Also how big of a job is it to install it, I will be getting my local shop to do it? Also does Fswerks or Tom tune for these cams? If so How much to re-tune my car with the cams installed.

Sorry for throwing all these questions at you guys.

Just make sure to keep the cams & crank in time & you'll enjoy the mid range grunt

Thats great that Massive is pulling this off for the '08+ people! I'd go for the stage 1's. You will find you need cam bar that fits the back of the cams when you have the motor atdc & w/ that the #1 cam lobes should be pointing towards each other. The back of the cam slots are off set, so w/ that cam bar laying across the back of the head & into the cam slots it only fits one way & w/ the pass tire off. Use a timing peg= to keep the crank from spinning clockwise & then you you rolling the exhaust cam backwards w/ a wrench in the flats of the cam & shove a 3/16 drill bit thru the timing cover after removing a plug to keep the guide tensoiner from retracting. & then use 2 wrenches to bust the cam sprocket bolts lose. I used two tye wraps around the exhaust sprocket to the chain & undid the exhaust sprocket bolt & the intake one comes out when you pull the intake cam out. Install the intake sprocket on the new intake cam. I marked the cam caps on one side to keep them in order. The exhaust cam in next & put the sprocket on & tighten up the bolt's w/ the preveis two wrenches & put the timing bar in the back of the cams to make sure the cams are in time. For me its easier to do that to explain. Its fairley simple, just need to make sure the cams & crank are in time w/ one another. You'll enjoy the midrange grunt. I installed my crane cams last monday.

Did you have to retune your car after installing it? I don't want to have to pay like 300$ to get a re-tune from fswerks.

if you already have an FSWerks tune. Just get a new tune, I think it's like $35 or so.

With the stage 1 cams you shouldn't have any issues

I ordered my 91 octane tune w/ egr & rear o2 senser delete. I've added crane cams stage 1 w/ no problems. My buddy at work hooked up the ids & showed me it was running a tad on the rich side & that is w/ their header too.

I think im going to go ahead an order it today, since they have a sale on right now. I will let you guys know how it goes. Anyone else have any opinions on how much HP I will get from it.

I am hoping my my current mods, Fswerks Header/CAI/Exhaust/Tune, plus with the camshaft I will be getting close to 180hp N/A, is this realistic?
