Hey guys I was wondering what kind of cams I should get, either aftermarket or PI. I'm a broke ass college student so I'm leaning more towards the PI cams haha. I plan on getting boosted in a year so that is why I'm not going with the PI head swap.

Pretty much just wondering your guys' input. Also how much hp/tq should the PI cams give me? Thanks in advance.

No doubt rags. I could see crank hp being that high for a pi swap considering the compression bump but rwhp is hard to believe with no other mods.

Nevermind. He has some pretty decent supporting mods. Looks like a full bolt on with gears and exhaust to support the pi swap. That's a great build for an n/a engine.

Most reports I have read say you can expect about 15rwhp from switching to PI cams. On my PI swapped car I picked up another 38 RWHP when I went to Comp 270's over stock PI cams. One thing to consider is whether or not you plan to change valve springs. Its a real PITA to do in the car and with the PI cams it shouldn't really be neccessary. However if you go to forced induction and aftermarket cams you aftermarket valve springs will be a must.

I'm not hating but your trap speed and dyno numbes don't really jive. With that sort of power you should see more like 107 or 108 mph in the quarter. I bet on a dynojet you would see about 260 RWHP.

Just another example why dyno numbers really don't mean all that much.
