Cat/ Kent/ Piper Cams???

There are so many different cams for the 16V engine - and I don't know what the differences are.

I'm leaning toward the Piper 285's at the mo - would this be a bad decision? Will it drink more fuel, or are other Cams better for fast road/ track use? I'm really an acceleration guy, not top end...

Cat Cam's 708's seem very popular, with 157bhp seeming a common result for these. They are also a bit cheaper than Piper and Kent cams I think.

Just reading around (on other places) a lot of people seem to opt for the piper 285. I don't see where the differences are. Is the Cat more or less aggressive? What range of revs do the mentioned cams improve?

Is it possible to have blueprinted standard cams (max. manuacturers tolerance)?

with manufacturers maching tolerances nowadays i doubt it. not like the good old days when blue printing a Ford cross-flow or a pinto could see a 15bhp gain!!!

I wouldnt go for a re-profiled cam as some cams are hard faced. so re-grinding could take away the hard facing on the lobes and wear out quicker.

Any info on fuel economy with one of these?

Would it be just as good as standard when driven sensibly?

Is it possible to have an switchable economic map and a race map?
