More low & mid range grunt. I have the Crane version of the Crowers. I like the narrow lobe seperartion of the Cranes= 110 degrees over the 114 degrees. It is well worth it. Compare the oem lobes to the aftermarket set. Similar to saggy boobs to a nice perky ones.

Cams are a great upgrade. You'd want to add a header & some kind of exhaust system & a intake= either a cai or a sri to go w/ the cams. Remember to think, the motor as a pump= in & out things. OBX has a less spendy header & there are a few cai & sri for less then 200. Then you'd want a tune too. Just to throw in the mix= a 23 head will get things flowing rapidly. A budget upgrade would be a 23 ST ('05-'07) exhaust manifold, a intake & a tune to go w/ thou's cams. So you'd have to figure out which way you want to go. Add the cams & do at least a intake & see how it runs & add a tune. As always 1 mod leads to another.
