He has the 2290301 part # we will be selling these for 349. I am installing a set of the 2290302 on a FR head hoping to have it done for Saturday's dyno session. Once we do some testing with them we will make them available on our site.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Glad you have these cams, but how are they, I can't realy tell from the specs, what I need to know, what kind of gain they provide, and more importantly where in the rpm range. Also how is the idle quality and are they drop-in, or require head modificaton + upgrade of valve springs/retainers? thanks in advance for the info

With the cams, and swapping out my shortie header in favour for a long tube plus some dyno time, i netted 24hp. the power band kicking in at like 3000-3400. i break traction in 1st no problem with 17's [other mods-intake, ported TB, stock flex, 2.5" Borla, UDP]

idle is hti and miss..some days it will idle..some days you have to be careful or it will stall at idle...usually i'm ok though.

i heavily disagree that cat stg 2s r plug and play...that is very wrong. they r far from plug and play.

We are working on the final stage of installing the stage 2 cats in a FR head. The head needed to be ground around the bucket for more clearance or the lobes would have hit the head.

That is interesting, sounds like what some are saying about the stage 3's. These must come with a larger lobe in a stage 2's clothing.
