What stage Camshafts should I buy

Hello I was curious as to what stage cams I should purchase. I have a 2009 SE MTX with all the bolt ons and wanted to get some cams. It is a daily driver however I do not mind rough idle or noise. I am willing to buy preformance lifters as well but is stage two and three don't get me more HP it's not worth it. I was also curious as to how much cams will get you HP wise

You said for a DD, So I'd recommed a stage 1 cams. I'd add a header & a tune also. Stage 1's will give you more mid range grunt, which is what you need for a DD.

I can't quite afford that, I was thinking stage two cams and lifters would put me pretty close to the k20 s output since it only makes like 160 who and like 132 trq

Yeah, you could do a set of 2's. You don't change the lifters, but you need springs. How 'bout a 23 motor install?

Well Felix idk how much that costs and I kind of like the idea of a high output 2.0 ... I already have the air intake and headers and test pipe and everything for my car 2.0

IDK how far you want to go. A 23 would be the cheapest mod for a DD. For a DD, I'd be looking at mid range torque. Yeah you could install a set of hi rev cams in your 20 & have some top end power. That would'nt be to good for a DD. Yeah, look at the 20 si's with no low end torque, one of the reasons Honda went w/ a 24 motor.
