K series Academy cams.

Hi

A friend has an ex Academy 1.6K EU3 series car which I think is 120bhp? What cams does this engine have, are the Supersport cams better? If so, and we had an EU3 ECU with a Supersport map, what power could we expect?

Thanks

1.6 Academy EU3 has standard Rover cams.  I swapped mine to Supersport, with SS ECU and vernier pulley and got big gains at higher revs - mostly where the standard setup ran out of puff above 5k the SS setup keeps pulling.  I think the quoted Supersport output is 137bhp (sometime stated as 140). No idea what mine puts out now though.

The right choice of cam would be the Piper 633 profile.
