The BSD gave noticable gains?
I have read up to 5 HP gains were proven....can this be right?
9000 miles= wow. I tried to keep miles off my car, but I enjoy driving it. Now I have 55,000 since '04. 5hp could be. A lot less rotational weight & static weight too. Freed up the motor huh?

Yeah,She is My baby.
Funny I refinanced the Car,and this was the first time I wasn't upside down in the loan.
Now its almost paid off and it still smells like brand new.
Now You know why I was so hesitant about the cams,huh?
Will be doing the BSD this weekend.

I'd add the entry level style of cams= crane/ crower stage 1 type of cams. I installed a set of cranes #224-0010 & what a difference. Just comparing the oem & the cranes says a lot. I would of loved to added the 0012's but this is my DD now.
