have a 99 c70 with under 70k miles. It has the 2.3 5cyl, 5 speed coupe. and has unimpressive performance. In the process of repairing an oil leak, I had to remove the cam covers. If I’m removing the can covers I figured I can easily change the cams for better performance. I want to get more power out of my 2.3 as economically as possible. 270 hp or so would be good. As a side note, power is ok as is, but only over 5k rpms. I also have a 2001 c7o (auto). Power is much more, and starts at a much lower rpm range.
That said, I have a few questions. 1- is a cam upgrade a good way to go? If so, what would be a good source?
2- is there an accurate on line source that I can read online(other than this forum)
3- is there a better way to get the performance I am looking for? As in more power, earlier in the rpm range?
Thanks so much!
