anyone. basically, im tryin to run the cr at 11.5 and with abit of head work, im trying to find a suitable cam.

now i was hoping that anyone would have a ruff idea what extra power does stage 1 vs 2 vs 3 have, and what are the cons/pros.

so far as far as the ebay adds go, they all say makes upto 20hp. i mean thats not helpful. i tryed doing a search, but i don't think anyone has ever compaired cams before (aftermarket). i know theres a great artical about the stock d15b vs d16z6.

what cam manufacturer?

most people believe that the crower 3 has the most power potential, rushi is making 170+HP at 7000RPM with it.

If its a vtec cam why not go big? Thats what vtec is for, to allow a big ass cam while still retaining idle and streetability.
nonvtec cams are bigger. i think with big vtec cams they can only be so big before the lobes interfere with the rocker arms. =(

crower stage 3. would be my guess. make sure you get that head to flow nice, that will be your best bet in paring it with the cam. also a tune.

Stg1 cams are for people that don't want to upgrade their valvetrain, likes springs and retainers. Worthless in most builders eyes, can boost midrange but does little to the top end.

Stage 2 is considered a good entry level upgrade, requires springs and retainers be upgraded, prefered for DDs.

Stage 3 is all out. I think it loses some bottom end, but I don't know much about them.

Do NOT buy no-name brand cams. I know Amkee and Crower. Some people like the Zex cams, but their stage 3 is junk from everythign I've heard.

Not much info, I know, but it's all I know on the subject, hope it helps.
