S50 Cams in my e36 325i

i was wondering how much hp gain i would receive if i installed S50 cams, including the chip to make it work, plus a fan delete, pulleys, and 3.5 hfm...i already have an intake and exhaust so I wanted to increase my power without going FI....so how much hp gains could i expect?

also what else would u recommend me do?

why not go and check out the sunbelt cams? they will give you a much better bang for your buck. now i say this because of course your gonna need to install them so why pay for s50 cams which are a decent price already to be installed with ok gains when you can spend the extra bit and get some cams that are a better suited taste to your driving habits and with much better gains.

fan delete does not give you any power really. id say 1-2 hp at the most
pullies are a decent upgrade but my advice is to stay away from underdriving your alternator.
3.5hfm is also another expensive , i say ditch this mod and use the money towards a good set of hot cams from places like schrick and sunbelt.

Mark,

Isn't it a bit unfair to compare used S50 cams to Sunbelt or Shrick?

I picked up my S50 cams for $200 and would expect someone to pay max $350 for a set. And aren't you talking over $1k for the above mentioned performance cams?

p.s. Holla at a playa one of these days!
