VAC Stage 3 Cylinder Head and Aggressive Cam Set-up????

Wondering if anyone has done this to their 1M? All in it looks to be about $8k and increases revs, flow and power depending on mods. Any actual experience?

Please only comment or respond if you have done this or have experience with someone who has.....

Thanks,
Tim

Huh? No mention of cams where? Have you done a standard lift cam upgrade to your 1m?

I believe Ken (Wedge Performance) is using one on a 335i. Haven't heard much about it though.

The cost/benefit ratio for headwork on the N54 make it not really worth the effort unless you're going for a numbers car. The results from the elusive prototype Shrick N54 cams haven't been posted yet, but they may be the thing that allows the platform see real gains from fancy port work and bigger valves. Just remember this is a forced induction DI engine, so these mods will probably make things worse.
