Hey guys i read up om some topics but didnt get much information regarding camshafts that can be put into this motor. I have an option of regrinding the current camshafts, but was also told that the 1.6 cams can give me better performance than the current ones. This didnt really make sense to me though, but my friend has the 1.8 j2 with a 1.6 gearbox and he says he has 1.6 camshafts, and the car seems really quick. Also is there any throttle body modifications i can do? I want to see what options i have available before i send the car in for tuning, as i found someone who can tune my standard ecu with some device. It makes a big difference as he tuned my friends car and we saw quite an improvement. Thanks in advance

My thought is, if he's got the 1.6 gearbox as well, it's probably geared shorter and *that's* where the performance difference is.
