So other then a few little things ill just keep to myself they did a great job and have always helped me out. I also know there are a lot of people out there that have tons of experience with the focus (Tom, Randy) But with the FR stg 2's in my car I think they were worth the buy. Maybe there not for everyone but to each their own right? If I could I would go to Tom's shop or Randy's but it's a pretty far drive.

So do I know they did everything right (I hope) Well I guess ill never know but I trust them so If it blows up was it my fault in building the motor? Or something in the tune? I guess ill never know.

I really don't like seeing all this fighting and trashing each other! We should stick together and give helpful tips and tricks to everyone isn't that what these forums are for?

So I just wanted to throw that in there and say I'm one person who has a lot of Auto Mechanics experience but no tuning experience, I'm happy with my cams and my PWSC.

Thanks

If you don't want to start anything why send me idiotic PM's like this.

" well just so you know with the dyno they use you get less hp then a roller dyno so how about you change your numbers from 270 or 280 to 296 since thats what I made on a dyno here just to check everything out. sorry buddy "


I'd like to know where you get this information. Put it on a Dynojet and let me know what it makes. You guys can't use Desktop Dyno to get accurate dyno charts.

WOW
Well, actually $27 per hp isn't that bad considering the cost per hp of other bolt-ons like intake, header, exhaust, udp, etc. However, most cams are in the range of $350-$400.

Like mentioned already tho, cams seem to have other benefits such as moving the power band higher and perhaps creating more efficiency in the engine. Also, on a supercharged application where efficient boost increase is limited, cams may be just the ticket to get that little extra hp we all crave And if that doesn't suffice, go nitrous or big turbo

I get the info from a dyno I dont make it up. I dont know whats up your ass but give it a rest, someone made alot of power on a focus that you didnt tune so what!
Oh also it was a mustang dyno 1100

^^wow stupidest response ever. you got the info from a dyno. prove it. ppl make tons of power on fofos and no one gets butt hurt.

mustang dynos are skewed numbers anyway cuz they need to inflate the ego of the pony car drivers

You stated "But with the FR stg 2's in my car I think they were worth the buy."
What kind of HP gains would it take for it to be worth the 350 to 370.00 that you paid massive im guessing for the cams

Tom

I didn't get them from massive I bought them from Ray, anyways I just wanted to up my n/a power and since I had them eh why not stick with them. I haven't seen a lot of people use them on a PW car so I gave it a shot. When it was n/a it was worth it but now I guess I could really care less. If I had my stockers I would've kept them in. Just wanted to try to squeeze any hp out of it I could.

all dyno are different and no 2 are would be the same but number should be close.The right way is dyno before and after on the same dyno to get ture Hp gains.
