    Doin a bit of reading - and I'm just looking for suggestions on Cams.
    Looks like theres a few options:

    JWT - they make a S1, S2 & C2
    Tomei - They have a few different durations available
    HKS - they have a 264*
    Nismo - 262 Duration.

    What I'm looking for is a good steady idle - I dont want anything that idles like a rotary engine. Good midrange power is what I'm looking for with this. Any input would be great guys/gals.

    I think the JWT S2 and C2 give you a better idle than the S1, although you have to change the idle rpm to 800 or so to prevent stalling (maybe just for the 6MT).

    i heard cams move your powerband into the mid-high rpm, so you lose out on your daily driven power...not sure if its true but i just read it somewhere.

    I've had S2 and C2, I think the C2 are more aggressive than the S1. I idle at about 1000rpm. lol

    Stock DE 240/238
    S2 256/256
    S1 260/260
    C2 261/261
    C8 272/272
    C9 283.5/283.5

    Pretty sure S1s were the first ones released. They are essentially the same as Nismo cams. ;)

    Just get a Vortech man. :)

    March is coming and I gotta keep up with the 45 guys :LOL:

    Thanks for the specs Viet - I did think about F/I for a minute and I would've gone with the Stillen Stage 2 only cuz of the CARB cert. But I kinda lost intrest in that cuz the install would take a few days and its my daily driver.

    Edit.

    really doesnt look cost effective. by the time your through installation cams + labour will have brought you to over $1,500. only seems worth it if you are going FI with a built motor and already have the motor out. $1,500 seems too much for 15hp lol

    that would be a nice down payment on FI haha

    I have to agree with you Brown. Cams sound cool, but for a TT for $7k. the $1500 will get you around 30hp. ;) (plus labour)

    I've had Cams in one of my older cars and it made a huge difference. It didnt cost no $1200 like they do now. I actually got an extra set and had them custom grinded.

    Im sure it will help out the FX- how much? who knows? But i do agree on the Cost/HP ratio isnt all that good. :shame:

    would they do fine with the stock engine internals ?

    The costs of installing cams is pretty high if that is the only thing being performed at the time. It really should be done with the engine out. Look at a supercharger before doing internal NA work.
