Hi. Having shelled out for a previous rolling road and being fairly disappointed (jets set at significantly different heights) I wondered if any of you have experience or opinions of Peter Baldwin at Cambridge? I don't want to chuck money at the car for no improvement but will do if it is worth it. Is he good with twin H4 SU's?
Additionally what are the views of 276 cams Vs an SW5 from swiftune? How will I benefit by switching to an SW5?
Cheers

SW5 will give smoother tickover and max torque lower down the revs. Trade off is that it will run out of steam at the top end earlier and maybe make a little less overall power.

Peter Baldwin is very good and will be good with your SUs. SW5 cam is a great all round cam and is my first choice.

I'll second that, one of my friends raced Miglias with Peter Baldwin & has always praised his engineering & tuning capabilities.

To all intents & purposes Pete knows everything there is to know about A series tuning, he's been at it since Moses was a lad :roll:

Rest assured that you will get an excellent set up from him, and MONUMENTAL power figures into the deal too :lol:

As far as the SW5 is concerned, it is a very, very good road cam that is known to deliver good power for a reliable road setup. For an easy to use no fuss mild cam it really can't be beaten. I suspect that its figures will be similar to those of a 276 in a lot of cases. It probably won't "feel" as fast though.
