I have been searching around for any possible way to get a little more horsepower without changing the internals yet. I do plan on crank rods and pistons but wont have the money to do an engine build for a little while. I have considered maybe cams will free up some horsepower but was just wondering what you guys thought

Im at about 430rwhp now, just about out of options until i do the motor build. Heads would def be nice but i really want to stay under a grand. I think ill wait until the build for heads. Anyone had any experience with the comp cams stage II xtreme energy?

definitely some stage 2 blower cams and valvesprings. your car will sound sick and it will free up a lot of power without straining the internals too much more. i have the CMS 2.5 blower cams and they are badass.

Cams are def the way to go, thanks for the feedback, i just wanted to make sure there wasnt anything i was looking over. I do like the way the CMS 2.5's sound, what'd you get for power?

i haven't dyno'd my car yet, its still in the break in process. i'll have a writeup and numbers once everything is done. i'm 90% sure the p1sc will make over 500 to the wheels with this setup

Is there anyone that has numbers from before and after cams with a blower?

do you currently have a power pipe for your car? those KB's are very sensitive to inlet restrictions and you may pick up some power by simply swapping to a better inlet.

Yeah, i had the JLT kit on and when i bought the blower it came with the KB big tube kit so i sold the JLT an kept the big tube. It seems to be a pretty decent kit.

Installing one of these is sure to speed up the car..





seriously, depends on your goals.. rockers an spings give you some top end to win the race, but you won't feel it..
