Im thinking about putting a set of cams and springs in my car next year. I have the money for everything already, just a matter of making up my mind on what ones to buy..

What cams do you guys reccomend would suit my car best as it is n/a with stock/unported heads?

Ive heard good things about the hitech stg 2's, and VT stage 1's..

And i hear comp makes a good spring.


What do you guys think?

Thanks for your time:)

EVERYBODY will say hitech, but i think CMS is a great cam. I am not saying hitech isnt a good cam, but alot of people do it because of the fact the stage 2 u dont have to swap out the springs. Also are u going to go with boost or spray later, because thats a deciding factor too

custom ground cams FTW, its only the real way to get the most of your set up, is worth the extra $ IMO

i like my hitech stage 2's...and yes was nice not to have to do springs.

but i agree the cms stage 2's are very nice. especially seeing jayc's new thread

n/a....with full bolt ons i would guess 320-330

full bolt on with those cams should be around 290 at least (jayc made 287) and then with the heads i would guess that would be around 320...could be more or could be less

400 rwhp. Maybe even 500.

Just kidding. Depends on how aggressive your tune is, and supporting mods, and blahblahblah someone else tackle this.

I say go big or go home. Definately do your research. I got comp 262's and wish I would have gone with a more aggressive cam. Once you get them in there you're not going to want to do it again.

well bigger doesnt always mean better. ive actually seem cars that go with stage 3 heads and cams and it jacked up their car. i think its just best to build around what u have.

That's absolutely true. In my case I should have gone with stage 2s though. There's not a big enough difference imo with the 262's
