I'd say which ever cam you had, the guy tuning the car would make the difference

Same duration, tx2 has around 10 thou more lift , and 117 versus 114 lsa


**** knows whats better, i think the tighe stuff is a quick lift cam like there smaller stuff. but the tx2 has a wider lobe separation so that in itself would pick up spool and midrange a bit i think


you'd have to test them back to back. I just got a mate to get a 996 to try, should be good, better than his girly
210@.50 jobby with a 3540/66..lol
cheers

well the progress pretty much stopped in 2012 , I had to go away for nearly 2 years but it has been half tuned it made 295kw @13psi so im just getting back on my feet and Paul is working on and off overseas so within the next couple of months we will get the final tune into this. Don't really want to guess numbers at this stage but 295 @ 13psi is a fair indication that it will do alright.
Thanks to DVS Jez tuning at summersby Sorry for leaving you in the lurch mate.
