    TR4/4A Re: Performance cam

    So if I was just itching to spend money and I want a street car not a race car the big bore 89mm kit would be a better investment? Or would the benefit from that only come from doing other things as...

    TR4/4A Re: Performance cam

    The cam that is see is listed as a street cam and offers larger amounts of torque an increase of 12-15 hp for $300. That sounds like a bargain to me for a simple replacement piece. Idle and such is...
