ESS SC Cams??

Is anyone running ESS SC cams for the e46? Any information would help me out.

Im running an AA stage 1 soon to be Stage 2.

Thanks.

I'm running them. I think they work better with s/c cars.
Let me know if you're serious about cams.

AA doesn't have a cam kit? IIRC, ESS cams are solely made for the ESS Kits, but as you can see they can go into any car. The tuning would be the issue there. Gotta find a good tuner. I'm no expert, but I'm just trying to give out some info and maybe learn a little myself.

I have AA cams which came in a technik box.

But you can use ESS or AA Fi cams on either kits. It might complicate the tuning process since the specs may be different.

I couldnt find AA cams on the site, guessing i need to call to get any information on their stuff, because im about to order my Stage 2 upgrade with meth so a single tune would be nice so i dont have to keep sending it back for a reflash

ess and technik cams aren't exactly made by those companies, they're cams resold by those companies, handpicked by those companies. ESS's cams are also 248/256, which is a profile offered by Technik- which are Schricks.
The schrick cam profiles i recall are, in advertised duration
in: 248, 260, 264, 272
out: 248, 256, 268

Ya it was a noob question. I've NEVER done cams in any of my cars so I've been reading up on it lately and have become curious. Interested in doing it after my car is out of the shop in a couple weeks with some custom stuff.
