I'm getting my cams installed in the next few weeks. These will be CSL race cams (290/282 - much more aggressive then the schrick/dinan cams) also up from the stock 272/270 (thereabouts).

The main concern here is that AA would need to dyno-tune the software. They've agreed to do so for the same price, however it means I would have to go down there and do it there. I would probably have them install the kit at the same time.

The question then becomes how much power is actually then usable? With the cams, I should be approaching 380-400 at the crank with properly tunned software (delage). And I honestly believe for a little and light car like the Z3 that will be more then enough (I can already keep up with a C5 Z06 on a straight and can walk all over a 911 turbo mostly due to the 4.10:1 gearing).

If the issue is getting to AA, I'll gladly take a week off to drive your car there to have it installed, and deliver it back for you

Get the supercharger then run a taller diff, so you're not shifting before you even make it across an intersection. Something like a 3.64 or 3.73. Maybe you could hit 300 on the back straight at Mosport

The power is always usable, you'll just need to use the first couple gears diligently. You can fit some wide rubber in the back of your car right? Once the camber is sorted (if it's not already) you'll have no issues with traction.

I can go up to 305 or 315s in the back on 11 wide rims without having to pull the fenders. Camber is not a problem, I have the adjustable camber plates to dial it out.

This is definitely very tempting...
