i've got a kent, purely because didn't want to go full out with the 8v and always hold a little back, so i'm not caining the engine everyday!

I enquired about the PT11, but Kent told me its not harsh enough to bother with....

So how much is a CAT cam then? For the S2 8v?

Catcams is the way to go on the 8v,but don't get too greedy on the duration otherwise MOT
time won't be fun. After having a quick scan through the range thats available from Cat ,(look in the range for the TU3m "big bearing") I'd say that the 4900640 would be a good all rounder .** check with Matt at QEP first and get his advice
- 277deg (241deg @ cl+1mm) ,11mm lift(quoted) ,a LCA of 111deg and doesn't have too much "overlap" which should help with emissions and give a nice spread of power without being peaky. I would advise the use of a pulley, the Catcam one looks well designed and is at the right price from memory.
You could go to the next one up which will drive ok and give a very good top end, it probably won't peak until nearly 8K. But it will give you grief with high HC's at MOT time and with the STD ecu rev limit of 7200rpm and mapping i don't think that it would be much cope.

At the end of the day, if you want very high lift/power, be prepared for more costly mods (ie. ecu, standard internals)
ah what the hell Put 100bhp of nos through the little 8v! whizzzzz BANG!
