yeah does any body have any starting point for cams skunk 2 stage 1 in particular.

jay, right now I;m using th ehigh octane a3 kal with s2 stage 1, megan header, test pipe, s2 cat back(all 2.5), s2 valve springs. It runs a hell of alot stronger than it use to but I am no expert on tuning and from what I understand it is probably running lean. So yeah help anyone. peace.

i am using the high octane map for the a3 motor but i must say i am getting knocks like no other!!!!!

I need this to get fixed...im gonna be doing some dyno tuning tomorrow and see what i can come up with and see how much i need to adjust the cam angle...i am getting bad knocks during light accerlations but once its at WOT or anything about 20 percent throttle it goes way...dunno what to do but i will learn i guess

i would start off with the a3 base
1. tune for a/f doing 3rd gear pulls
2. WATCH FOR KNOCKS if you are getting knocks retard ignition troughout all cam angles
3. when you have your a/f set
start advancing with ignition until you start getting knocks on 3rd gear pulls.

that will be set for a base skunk 2 map while you get the car dyno tuned..
