Heard alot about cams but don't know much? Are they a good investment? How well do they work with GIAC. Were to get them for a good price.

Re: What do cams cost for a MK4 vr6 w/ GIAC (tcrboravr6)

schrick new are like $700+. DSR is like $400. they work fine with a chip, and you can always reprogram the garrett that you do have to work even better with cams. I think theyre the best investment ive made in my car, next to eurolights.

Schricks seem to show a little more hp on the dyno. The schrick's are 268's which are designed to give you power more towards higher RPM's the Dsr's are 256's and they are more of a mid range power adder. It really a personal preference. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I'll take you for a ride this weekend. I have the scrick 260'264's.
edit: 268's in a MKIV give a CEL and they are more expensive because the DSR's are regrinds of factory cams.

Dunno, thats what RPI told me. Not worth the risk in my opinion. I am trying to get a GTG at Speedworld going for tomorrow so if you can cruise out and I'll take you down the strip.

Dont forget TT cams. They are about $500 and are just as good as Schricks.

Has anyone else heard this? Will a correctly mapped GIAC chip fix this?

How good are the tt ones? They make a real good exhaust.

Welcome to the world of vr6 price gouging. Try waiting for a group-buy on schricks, as that will get the price down closer to the actual cost of those things, not the $900 or so that places ask! As for the cel, I'm not sure, try asking http://www.matrixengineering.cc they should have the answers for you, AND they are the NW distributor for GIAC

from a few ppl ive talked too that have these cams in their cars, they told me they are almost exact quality as the Schricks. They are not a regrinded cam, but they are cheaper then Schricks. I guess its all name ... not sure tho.
