Schrick cams are ace! I don't have them but I know of several cars with them fitted (none are bmws) and they have a significant effect on the performance

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

Alters the timing of the intake and exhaust valves to allow a greater mixture of fuel/air to allow more power throughout the rev range.

Good conversions with air intake can produce upto 30bhp and 20lb/ft!
