    which camshafts can I put in which will give more power ? don't want brand new expensive ones. do M3 ones fit ? from which engine?
    I was going to fit some but need to do it sooner as my valve cover gasket has started leaking.
    Thanks

    Only US M3, Alpina or Schnitzer cams will fit from the parts bin.

    Cat cams and schrick would often be better too

    Hmm, nice. Alpina or Schintzer are easier to source I guess? than US M3 being they're in the US only lol.
    Thanks

    They are about the same really, both hard to find, but I guess less people would be searching for the Alp/ACS ones.

    From now on, you don't look, you wait.

    They'll always be rare unless you buy new.
