Thanks, Eric. I did a search and come up with your site but your site is down.

Who has a dyno chart showing the gains from the install of the 91 intake cam vs stock B14 cams? I know I've seen one before.

No it ain't. Check out SCCs cam shootout from last year. The 91 intake cam is worth about 9hp and 6 ft-lbs. That dyno chart is right on.

here is another car with a '91 cam. the first runs are wavy because the timing was way off. This is with stock exhaust and JWT POP, and timing @17. No other mods.

Do you think he read the article? Oh yeah that's right, he embarrassed the SE-R community by writing a long winded letter to SCC. Even they made fun of it by noting that they had to edit it for length. People still talk about that one.

By that statement, I see you don't really know him at all.

The 9hp increase seems to be very optimistic.
I have a graph showing a 91 SER with S3 cams with only a 9hp gain. If both of those graphs are correct, I will see a 18hp increase with my S3 cams on my 97 200sx.

JWT claims I will only see a 10-15hp increase with S3 cams.

You have to remember... That 9hp gain is only representative of ONE particular car that dyno'd with the comparison between the low-port intake cam and the high-port intake cam. Not every car will see the same results. Too many variables to consider.

You can't assume that if a high-port SR20 gained 9hp with the JWT cams, and a low-port SR20 gained 9hp with the high-port intake cam, then the low-port SR20 will gain 18hp with the JWT cams. You can't add horsepower that way. If that were the case, the SR20 would make well over 200hp with just bolt-on's and no internal engine work.

However, it has been shown that a low-port SR20 will show more gains with the JWT cams than a high-port SR20 would.

Regarding the SCC Project Sentra SE-R cam shootout, if anyone has actually read the article, you'll see that Dave Coleman stated something to the effect of, "Since we are using a '98 intake cam in a '91 cylinder head, the gains may not represent the actual gains on a '94+ cylinder head; it's an approximation, but it's the best we could do." Unfortunately, SCC does not have another low-port SR20 in which to do the same tests (Mike Kojima's car wouldn't be representative as he has a fully built SR20.)

FYI, the '98 intake cam is the same as all the low-port cams post-'94 and pre-roller rocker SR20's.

I have a '99 FSM, and the '99 intake cam is alittle smaller. The '98 maybe the same, but the '99 is not.
