M3 cams might be a better idea, solely based on the price difference between the M3 cams and the schrick cams.

The Schrick cams are quality cams though. But the performance difference just isn't worth the price compared to M3 cams.

I would recommend a chip with the cams. I'm running the M3 cams, and tried with and without the chip.

the chip smooths the power band, where as the stock ecu, it's like a surge of power after 4k rpm

you'll gain more power with chip.
