How much you gain, if anything at all, depends on how well your stock cams were tuned from the factory. You may see a lot, you may see nothing. You can always go with a set of stage 1 cams, or get a chip to raise your idle to accomodate stage 2 cams.

The idle on our cars is too low from the factory anyway. Since our stock gears and cams have no key or pin to properly position the gears, it is just sheer luck if you have factory cams that are anywhere close to optimal, or even at 0 degrees!
