G'Day,

A mate of mine has a 1999 AU Series I Forte, and is looking to put an AU XR6 cam into the engine to replace the stock one.

I was wondering:

1. Will it be a straight fit
2. If so, once fitted, will that be the end of it, or will there have to be other things changed to make it work properly.


Thanks in advance,
Testercles

It will work but you wont get the best out of it without a retune and some custom head and port work, Tickford had the heads basically port matched and some rework done and a different map setup in the ECU to get it all to idle and run smooth. As for putting it in it should just bolt in where the old one came out of.
Any camshaft with a more agressive or performance grind needs a different timing setup for a start and the fuel mapping is also slightly different.
