Mace cams for LFX??

I'm wanting to get these mace cams for my 13 LFX but I'm curious if they are actually worth the gains? This is my daily driver and is basically stock except for a trifecta tune and an exhaust.

If you look down about half a page you'll see DGM's grueling thread about his installation. He didn't get near the gains that they've reported overseas.

Not sure if answered before, but was that guy tuned prior to the cam swap and tune? Want to know if the 45hp is above an already tuned engine, if not then a good portion of the 45 is in getting a tune.

Plus if GPI did cams and it worked out really well I think we would be hearing about it. I remember Derrek asking Ryan from GPI about it and never really heard anything other than yes he did one. I just dont see huge gains from this cam swap.

I am not sure to be honest, maybe Gwatney performance can clarify.

Awesome result though.

They say about 30-40hp, the one in the graph above made about 45rwhp with cams only.

if you have a good confident tuner that is familiar with VCM suite by HP Tuners then go for it !

The Mace Cams have proven to be a big pain for the minimal gains. I've found out why they're weak, and a few of us are working towards having some new cams made here in the USA...but they're not going to be cheap. :\

I'll be posting here once we make some more progress on the topic.
