    Cam Question for 19 GTX 230

    Has anyone experimented with other stock 4-Tec cams in the 230 motor?
    I've heard that the 255 cams will improve performance. Is this true?
    What about the cam from an 05 RXP 215? I can get one for free so it'd be a very cheap upgrade if it is one

    Check what is the part number written on the cam . The best cams has a mark with written 628 or 629 . If the 05 rxp has got the numbers 628 or 629 you have the best oem stock camshaft available in the market . Go with that !

    What improvements are you looking for as i have the same ski and its amazing just how it is? I installed the ski and X module which now gives you launch control and she shoots out of the water on take off and i havent reached 5hrs yet which is when the ECM will be unlocked.

    I've read that the 230 motor is essentially the same as the 260 (with some changes of course) but the cam limits it's performance and that swapping in a 215 or 260 cam will allow it to reach 260hp with no other mods. I could be wrong but that's what I read on a few threads.
    Mine will have a free flow exhaust, intake, the ski and x module, Fizzle supercooler and a tune by next summer so it should be a little rocket

    I think the main difference between the motors is that the 230 has an internal intercooler in the intake and the 260 has an external intercooler. There are kits available to changeover to the external cooler.

    The 215 has an internal intercooler. The 230 upgraded to an external intercooler from factory

    The 230 is an external intercooler. I'm changing it to a fizzle supercooler before next season since the stock coolers are prone to cracking and the added performance of the fizzle doesn't hurt.
