Kawi's Exhaust race cam = garbage

Hey guys Jsut wanted to let you know Im throwing mine in the garbage! Back to back run of cam swap resulted in 5-7hp loss threw out the entire powerband....the power curve didnt even change it jsut dropped power everywhere. I might have a custom exhaust cam ground for a lil more power. and Im expirementing with some other stuff.


but so far if I were anyone else I would chuck that thing in the garbage!

Why pray tell did KHI produce the damn thing then? if it has a minimal amout of increased lift & duration as reported it seems odd to loose overall performance. :dontknow:

i pissed away $100 bucks but at least now I won't waste anymore time and money on a cam swap that does not show any gains. thanks for telling the results, you could have just sat back and let the rest of us find out for ourselves!
