Cams - £545
pulleys - £200
Mapping - £220
+ fitting?

If you have the money to do the cams, you would be better off forgeting them, saving a few £££ and fit a lightweight flywheel. You will get much more performance out of the flywheel on the road and it will improve your mpg rather than reduce it like the cams will. It will feel like you have a extra 30+bhp throughout the rev range. With the money left lsd would be a great mod!

I'd spend on the LSD rather than a flywheel, flywheels carry energy do they not? Less weight less energy carried? Dont think cams will get you far, max power I've seen from cams n all the other mods was about 220bhp.

This is something that I'm looking into when my belts are done in October...

I've been quoted £750 for cam and belt change.

Modding the V6 for decent power is going to cost either way. You can get similar powers from the 4cylinder k-series or more from the T-series. Lad at our place just bought another turbo and is going to mod it to about 400bhp should be mint once its done!
