Which cams did the Evo 8 fq400 use?

Does the Evo 8 fq400 have more aggressive cams?

Surely the standard cams on the fq400 are maxed out at 400bhp?

They used MR cams. Worth changing if your looking for more power.

I remember reading somewhere that internally the cams are higher lift on the 400...

Can anyone confirm this?

Most of the information is in the the manuals available on MLR

Additional info is in the FIA homologation documents
