Well, found a lot about the Crower Stage 1 cams but nothing really answered my question that I already posted.

Im going to take a guess here, they will shift your powerband some, and you wont gain any more then 10hp unless you have supporting mods like full exhaust and intake mods, make it breathe!

I figured there would be a little bit of gain in there but wasnt really sure how much as far as top, mid and bottom range goes. I was looking into the d23 head swap but it seems like more of a hassel than I am willing to go through right now. Just want to throw some bolt ons up so I can get more from my nitrous

I am interested in thou, too. I was looking at Cossie's fast road set & OBX's stage 1's & Crower's stage 1's. Seems like OBX's is a copy of Cossie's & is a single pattern, where Crower is a split pattern cam that favor's the intake side= more lift & duration & is on a 114 degree lobe center, where I would say that OBX's & Cosworth's are on a 112, but no info, that I found. On a 23 I believe 8-10HP & 8-12 lbs of grunt, w/a header/2.5 exhaust/ SRI or CAI. & a tune. Pro's are more DD driveably & torque at the lower RPM & you don't have to deal w/ spring's. Con's are there is more on the table w/ a stage 2= now your on a 112 LS w/ more lift= in.389''/ex.373'' & more duration @ .050=in. 228 degree's & ex. 220 degree's= shockermore grunt & HP @ a higher RPM & more rev's too, if you don't blow the bottom end. On a 20 you will need a 23 head for sure to see any gain's vs no 23 head, that I believe you'd be going backward's. So w/ that said, you'd see some gain's, I would try to figure out what it take's to do a 23 head, or just upgrade to a 23 all together. Let us know how it run's HUH!

Once everything is finished in the spring I will post some dyno numbers. Kind of skeptical on what to think right now. I know it will be really fun to drive and a 100HP n2o shot at the track will be pushing some fun numbers for an every day driver. Just really curious to see how it will run and what I will be looking at HP wise when everything is said and done. Should be good im hoping!!!

Hope you have an aftermarket IM and a header for those cams, otherwise they won't do you any good.
