Yer looking at $200-250 all said and done, plus valve shims.

Looking at the dyno charts on the OVT page, the 'A' bests the 'B' by a smidgen.

A mild Volvo cam really wakes these engines up and requires *zero* other mods (aside from new shims) for there to be a very noticeable difference. Especially with the M47.

Of course, if you want to go further, get a different cam and do more mods. All up to you!

eh, I didn't need to shim my B cam or even my ipd turbo cam. He'll probably be fine.

If you stop and think about it, it’s literally not worth your time to get on TBOT every day and argue about politics.
