i'm thinking of getting the crower stage 2s and i have the following mod

- FS 4-1 race header
- AEM short ram
- AF/X UDP
- Borla catback
- Diablo chip x-14 (rised rev limiter and idle)

so what approx. power i'll get with the crower stage 2s as well?? without tuning btw, coz i don't have cam gears yet~
so also what is the gain by the cam alone?
and what about the power with tuning!!
thanks a lot! i know the numbers won't be exact but i just wanna get an idea!

I would say 140 with a 5spd. But if I'm not mistaken, you will need cam gears to get cams for two reasons. First, there is a little 'nipple' on each cam that lines up with a hole on all aftermarket gears, so stock wont fit. Second, you're gonna want the cams tuned and you can't do that accurately with stock gears.

heh.

ihave stock gears with stage 2's.. it IS a bitch to tune them tho.

get the gears if you can, and do the install all at once.

If I were you I'd save the money to slap on the adjustable cam gears when you install the cams. Saves a ton on labor and hastle in the long run.
