Cams and EFI
I am fixin to put my 1.6 8v into my Sammi. I figured since I had the engine out , I would upgrade the cam. After doing a CAM search on this BBS and reading everything, I decided on a low end cam from Asian Auto Parts. A few days after I ordered it, I stumbled onto a New thread here on the suzuki Forum. There was a lot of conflicting info about using a performance cam with the TBI EFI on the 8v 1.6L (my engine). It was a conversation the occured late into the posting so many of you may not have seen it. I did a different search on this BBS and found that there is very little info on cams with EFI. The general concensis is that it is best to stay with the stock cam (the ECM/ injector combo cannot compensate for the system change caused by a performance cam), but there was talk of possible work arounds.
I am curious if anyone here has had any experience with this. Any thoughts, ideas or even rumors would be appreciated. This might be an opportunity to create a post on this subject that could easily be searchable by future readers.
