Ended up choosing the Cosworths. Al got me a price on them that was quite a bit better than the what I could find on the GSC's and better than all the vendors I talked to about the Cosworth's. Also after reading through "i have no idea how many" posts on cams, the cosworths seemed like the best fit for "ME" . The Cosworth's may not make quite as much power, but I felt the GSC's might be a touch to aggressive for me.
I'm so looking forward to getting this thing tuned and seeing the numbers. I'll probably only run the 1/4 mile a couple of days this year, but I want to seriously beat some humility into all the Mustang GT owners up here. For some reason every 5th car on the road here is a mustang. Yes, I know I could beat a stock GT from a stop or in the 1/4... But from a role on the highway the new GT's are a pita.
I don't just want to win, I want to embarrass them in front of their wives, girlfriends, cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, etc in ways that will make them cry with the shame.
There aren't other cams, wvturbo2. There's only the GSC and Cosworth to choose from that make any power. The early Turbotrix regrinds are no good. Where did you hear that Cossies made less than "other" brands when there is only one other to choose from?
No one knows what any future cams will do. HKS has taken over a year...
Eh either way. With me its never enough, so who knows how long I'll stay on the stock turbo even haha. I'm already trying to decide of meth is worth the effort.
The thing I like about the Cosworth's is they show gains throughout the entire rpm range. You might get better peak hp out of the GSC's but the dyno plots I saw show they don't run as consistantly over the rpm range as does the cosworths. Maybe the dyno's I saw weren't tuned well or something, but coming from an s2000 I like nice smooth gains right up to redline.
My s2000's power curve looked like this / up to 9000rpm. After I got the SC'r it was even better . Sometimes I really miss that car sigh.
HKS has cams. cosworth and GSC Evo IX cams are not worth it because of the material ade to make it. im not sure about the HKs but i know the cams made by gsc and cosworth wasnt made with the good material.. correct me if im wrong, but i have heard a lot of people saying about how it cracks.
my intrests are back onto tomei cams, and hks cams. anyone else input please?
some one UP DATE THIS PAGE!!!

Don't take this the wrong way but; either you know, or you don't know. Don't post about what you've heard. Please let us know how GSC's and Cosworth cams use poor material.
