So what set of cams you going w/ ? Stage 1's perhaps? 180 sounds awesome, but realisticly maybe 10-12hp & about 15lbs of grunt. To me 180 out of a 20 seems kind of high w/o a 23 head or any head work, & w/ that you'd need bigger set of cams to spin it up to get your hp. What you have is a great DD set up nothing wrong w/ that. Thats pretty similiar to what I have.

You need a tune after you get an intake...People say you don't but I wouldn't call it smart adding cams and not getting a retune.

I just ordered the Stage 1 Cams, and got the timing kit too. 10-12hp still sounds good to me, would be nice if it ended up being the 20hp that the guy at massive estimated. Im gonna try and take my car to a dyno this summer and see where all these mods have put me at hp wise.

Yeah I feel like I am going to regret not going with the stage 2, but I did not want to have to buy the springs, which were like another 300$

im just gonna save up for an intake mani next.

I'm a 21 year old college student who has to pay tuition in loans because even if I tried I would never afford the 38k a year tuition of this damn place. And during the summer I live at home so free utilities/food/rent :). Car is paid off and my parents pay my insurance and phone bill because I have to handle tuition and everything else associated with school haha.

The girlfriend and I are very easy going, she prefers sitting at home with movies and some starbucks to big dates hahaha it rocks

This may be a really stupid question, but here it goes anyways. When I install my new cams, will it change the noise of the engine at all, or the exhuast tone?
