TL-S Cams noob ?

Hi Guys.

Im a bit noob when it come to engine internals...

I would like to know if I could swap my cams of my stock J30 with some TL-S cams without having any engine management ?

Would I see a good gain ? The only other engine mod I have is a CAI. Everything else is stock.

My car is a 05 with 150k km on it so around 90k miles...

One of my friend is a tech at Nissan and my uncle is a tech at Toyota and they're will to assit me doing that...

Thanks for the awnser

theres a few extensive threads about the TL-S cams. search.

there havent been dynos of the cams without engine management.. but stheman picked up some HP with his j36 and tl-s cams by tuning and changing the vtec engagement point.

the info may be kind of diluted but

http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...111156&page=14

http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...&highlight=cam (last two pages mention the cams in the j36)

but yes u can put the cams in without management (mine is running that way right now).. but you need to tune the car to take full advantage of the larger VTEC lobe on the cams. without tuning... some people are saying you may actually lose some power in vtec.. but you may yield some (minor) gains from the TL-S cams being hollow and lighter than stock cams.

So I understand that I can do it, but without engine management, it will be almost useless...

Ok thanks for the awnser, ill save a bit more for engine management...
