I'm after a 924s/944 circular throttle response cam without the 'lobe' section.

I know these are available from the US but if anyone has one and is wanting to return to stock let me know.

Thanks

Mine came from Porscheshop and it's great. I wouldn't go back to the standard cam

Nige does it cut the throttle travel down and make for better responses ?

Yes Mark. The standard cam is designed to vary in ratio whereas these give a linear throttle response

The advantages are:
    Shorter pedal travel
    More immediate response at small throttle openings
    A straight run for the cable which gets pulled across at an angle by the standard cam

Mines arrived but the cars in the paint shop until next week. Looking forward to trying it out. Interesting hearing your first impressions
