I don't have any knowledge on it, but just based in the setup of the m3 stock I can't imagine you would gain substantial power from camshafts. The engine already puts out more than 100hp per liter. Other NA engines out there boasting that same statistic need a lot of supporting mods to gain horsepower from "hot cams"

But like I said I'm only speculating, if anyone has real knowledge in this area they should chime in

There's a tuning company that claims with cam tune and exhaust is claiming over 50 hp

Actually the cams do add some power, its just the cost per hp ratio is terrible. If you got someone that can install them and index them properly with the VANOS and you can get it tuned it could be worth 20rwhp.

I looked into this a year ago and there are a couple of threads here that talk about these cams.

I know VAC uses them and has them installed on some cars (from what I read in the threads) and the only place I know that tunes them is Evolve.

The power is all in the tuning. I wanted to do cams after my warranty is up in a year, but the tuning is what has been holding me back.

Some people spend bank on exhaust systems that net less power to the wheels that cams, so if the $ is worth it to the user than its worth doing. A stroker would complement this upgrade as well.

Perhaps some vendors can chime in?

I would love to know about. It. Cause with full bolt on. Could be worst more then 60hp. And I think that should dramatically change the car around in. Terms of tq also. A rear differential should put some more power down.

Here are some threads:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...hlight=schrick

One thread mentions 6 months of tuning, not sure who tuned those things!

And this one is Evolve and their tuning package, although they say its still under development . Scroll down and you will see the Sport Cams: http://www.evolveautomotive.com/e92-...-packages_955/
