cam gear w/ s/c

How much would the cam gear help out on my focus? Would it be worth buying or would that just waste my money.

i just had cam gears and stage two competition cams installed on my foci. i really dont think it would be worth it unless you get cams too. bessides, if your going to p-ay someone to rip all that junk off to get to the head you might as well slam all the things you can while its open as apposed to having to pay someone over and over to open up the same area.

p.s. if you leave the camgear cover off the gears look sexy!!! you'll be doing fat chicks in no time!!!

Well cam gears can be more helpfull on a moderate to highly modded engine. Some have seen gains of 10 to 15 hp or even more on modded engines. But stock stuff id say look elsewhere for now until you can go with the whole package.
