  1. I would like to upgrade the cams in my car sometime in the near future Was thinking about poncams or un1cams I understand that being a step 1 cam you don't have to upgrade the springs, however with my car now pushing 13 years and the intention of running more boost 20+ psi down the track the added insurance in my opinion would be worth while. Due to a lack of tools/skills I would get a workshop to do the install, I understand that dropping in the cams is easy enough but the valve springs are a pain in the ass if the head is not coming off the engine. I was wondering if anyone has had this done to their car and how many hours of labor to expect to pay? Checking that the workshop chosen had the correct tool for removing the valve springs/experience doing it is of course going to make the job faster.
  2. Hello, So I was looking to get a set of Tomei poncams and type A valvesprings for my S14. The shop that is tunes my car suggested that the type A valvesprings are still too stiff for my car, and that I would be better off using their valvesprings. I would be getting the Type A valvesprings for less than half the price of the springs that the shop I get my car tuned at would sell them to me for. Would anyone be able to confirm that this is true or not? I can assume many of you have had experience with those tomei valvesprings, are they really too stiff? I don't want to buy them if they're going to be a risky proposition just to save money when it could potentially cost me more in the long run. Thanks for reading.
