my buddies E30/M52 track car (tuning help)

trying to help a buddy get some good advice...

he has a nice regional racer...E30 build with a M52 in it...put in scrhick cams, and a d'silva chip since installing a used M52 and something isnt right...worse than before when his old engine was stock (he blew up last year)

I/he suspects vanos issues, but the car is just about 4 seconds a lap slower at mosport right now and needs a tune...we don't think anything is wrong...it is just way out of sorts?

i told him to take it too Rocko!?

Gleb, craz asn...etc?

Too much variables to give a straight answer man. Who put the cams in? Did they have the jig to lock the cams or did they use a degree wheel, or did they just eyeball it? How's the compression of the new engine? Leakdown? Is it OBD1, or 2? Bring it to a shop and get the car scanned and give it a proper check over so you aren't just guessing.

OH! Errr... any shop should be able to figure it out. Take it to any of the racing related shops. Raven, RMP, or us...
