Cushman Stage 2 or HP 292. The HPs are alot more aggressive. CMS 2's will get you in the 290s. You also get a 5% forum discount.

The motor isn't all the way warmed up in this vid, it actually lopes a bit more than this. Like blownstang said their fairly aggressive, you won't be able to put around on idle anymore unless you want to snap you neck off.

Yeah I'm looking into cushman stage 2 and will call tmmr to hp... The only thing I didn't like from what I saw from the hp on you tube is it seems to me like the car wants to die because the idle and they kept having to step on the gas any reason for that? ???

The car wasn't fully warmed up so the idle was flucuating between low and high speed. But withe any cams you're going to need a custom tune that's spot-on or else it will kill and idle surge.

Everyone has their own opinion about what works best. The only true way to be happy is if you make an educated decision on your own based on well-known facts in the engine building world.

Do some research. A cam choice is a HUGE decision. Dont take it lightly, unless you enjoy swapping cams lol. There are so many factors to consider, dynamic compression ratio, LCA, overlap, duration, idle quality. And all of these factors affect how much youre going to enjoy driving the car. Everyone loves lope, its grabs the attention of everyone at a stoplight...but sometimes thats all it does! Whats the point in sounding like a drag car but only running like a 3 cylinder Geo? haha

Seriously, if you are interested in knowing the effect all of the things have, i can make a lengthly post. Just dont be influenced by everyone elses opinions, make your own decisions :)

Cms stage 2 n/a cams, stage 2 heads, 5.0 stroker, full boltons, full exhaust. 312rwhp/342ftlbs. Id say they did there job quite well
For the most part. I don't know if that stroker and ported heads help you much N/A. Only made about 15-20rwhp over a full bolt on cam 5spd car.

That is a nice little additional bonus, but on your site it says the code is disabled.
