Stage 2 crower cams. What else should i get?
 
I was looking into getting stage 2 crowers for my svtf, and was wondering if I needed to buy anything else like springs and retainers?? And I have 170k miles on it, should I rebuild first before doing this?

only cams we could use are cat cams but they are expensive check out C-F-M

they sell them.

Best first mod and I am sure most will agree is a tune

I sell the SCT LiveWire Flasher (cant use the newer xcal3) for 509.00 shipped and that comes with a full custom tune and FREE tune updates as you add more NA mods ,

I also offer the service of taking over you laptop and setting up the datalog list and doing the first datalog like I was sitting in the car with you as well as any future issues you may have there is no charge for checking datalogs even if it isnt tune related

^what he said. dont bother with cams. get the tune

i was thinking about the tune, but wanted to see if i could get cams before tuning it, since i already have most of the bolt ons from c-f-m, but i guess it better to just tune it for now! thanks for the help guys!

you would need a tune anyways if you got cams

I just got the Livewire from Tom and it's freakin great.

It's also going to give you the most noticeable difference in performance and overall driveability. And free NA mod-related updates for life is hard to beat.

If you want to spend some money, get the Cat cams. That's on my eventual "to-do" list.

Otherwise, as others have said, reflashing the ECU is the best bang for buck your are going to find.
