My dad removed my cams now due to it annoying him when he drove the car. I can assure you this on 3rd and 4th gear your car with cams will farking pull to redline like a mofo. You will love it!

Cams you say!! I've been chatting to Steve from swr. He's a busy man! He's waiting on some stock to arrive. Was chatting to him about mapping, and he recommends the unichip, considering I have his 4-2-1 branch already. He can also program it to suit the larger throttle as well.

don't waste your time with uniQ get Jamsport or pumaspeed map for your mods and you will love it

Mohamed, why did your dad find the cams annoying?

Stu, I recall you saying this before. What's the reason you don't recommend unichip? Bugs..... temperamental??

Im not a huge fan of piggy back chips it confuses the ecu and on mine it would sometimes just shut off the motor randomly pretty annoying when trying to cross an intersection.... also the gains from OBD mapping just seems better/smoother - Jamsport really do have fantastic maps and so do pumaspeed

Rositano, you are in AUS, go to Haltech and fit a Haltech Interceptor, and let them tune it. You will have hardware and tuning support there locally, it is a better option that unichip imho. I personally have deep respect for haltech and the work that they do plus you can look into a flex fuel system in the future should you wish to boost.

You have many options right at your door step, unlike us.

Fair call boys, fair call!

Stu, engine cutting out at an intersection!! Damn, I couldn't imagine anything worse here in Sydney traffic. I see what you mean about the reliability issues.

Skywalker, that's some good advice. The issue of local support was always at the back of my mind if I chose to go unichip. I know that there are some experienced guys in SA with the st150 in particular, but here in OZ, not too sure. Will have to look into haltech as well, that's for sure.

@rositano well i have more slightly more aggressive cams then the usual 280 degree i think, my cams sound awfully loud, louder then swr gen 2 cams and i have compared my car, aside from that i couldn't get mapping right and my car would run lean on the higher revs because my cams seemed to want to pull even past what the stock springs handle. According to what STU said i agree, best thing for you to do would be to get a locally sourced and custom tuned piggy back system. Tune your car live(whilst on dyno to calibrate fuel and ignition settings, etc...) . This would assure that you have utilised each and every mod you have done to its full capacity.
