I'm not sure. Thats a good point. I'll look into that after class.

How hard is it to do cam trays? do valves and springs need to come out with them or is it a simple switch? I think the S52s may be a wee bit too aggressive for my daily driver.

My car is entirely stock (motor/tranny wise) and the only other upgrade i have is a high flow air filter (K&N) and bavauto chip. I've been meaning to upgrade my chip, i dont really dig it, and if i do the S50 cams, a more performance oriented intake would be coming too...

EDIT: Found this bad boy. doesnt come with injectors or intake though. im budgeting $1,500..

Which means i'll be spending 2 Large

S52 = Single VANOS (on/off) 1996-1998 u.s - 1 solenoid I/O
S52s are only single vanos as per this resource (http://www.mrm-racing.se/forum/archi....php/t-69.html) and from what I have read as well.

The s50 came with double vanos, however they were never offered in NA is what I understand.


I could very well be wrong however.
