Just purchased the Crower stage 1 cams for my duri and just wondering if anyone else on here are running the same cams? If so what was the noticable increases, pro's/con's?[loveff]

Well, found a lot about the Crower Stage 1 cams but nothing really answered my question that I already posted.

Im going to take a guess here, they will shift your powerband some, and you wont gain any more then 10hp unless you have supporting mods like full exhaust and intake mods, make it breathe!

I figured there would be a little bit of gain in there but wasnt really sure how much as far as top, mid and bottom range goes. I was looking into the d23 head swap but it seems like more of a hassel than I am willing to go through right now. Just want to throw some bolt ons up so I can get more from my nitrous

Let us know=huh?

I am interested in thou, too. I was looking at Cossie's fast road set & OBX's stage 1's & Crower's stage 1's. Seems like OBX's is a copy of Cossie's & is a single pattern, where Crower is a split pattern cam that favor's the intake side= more lift & duration & is on a 114 degree lobe center, where I would say that OBX's & Cosworth's are on a 112, but no info, that I found. On a 23 I believe 8-10HP & 8-12 lbs of grunt, w/a header/2.5 exhaust/ SRI or CAI. & a tune. Pro's are more DD driveably & torque at the lower RPM & you don't have to deal w/ spring's. Con's are there is more on the table w/ a stage 2= now your on a 112 LS w/ more lift= in.389''/ex.373'' & more duration @ .050=in. 228 degree's & ex. 220 degree's= shocker[lockdance]more grunt & HP @ a higher RPM & more rev's too, if you don't blow the bottom end. On a 20 you will need a 23 head for sure to see any gain's vs no 23 head, that I believe you'd be going backward's. So w/ that said, you'd see some gain's, I would try to figure out what it take's to do a 23 head, or just upgrade to a 23 all together. Let us know how it run's HUH!

Once everything is finished in the spring I will post some dyno numbers. Kind of skeptical on what to think right now. I know it will be really fun to drive and a 100HP n2o shot at the track will be pushing some fun numbers for an every day driver. Just really curious to see how it will run and what I will be looking at HP wise when everything is said and done. Should be good im hoping!!!

Hope you have an aftermarket IM and a header for those cams, otherwise they won't do you any good.

Performance can suffer w/o IM and header mods when adding performance cams

Also, from all the posts I am reading on all of the IM forums, what good does the IM do unless your going the forced induction route? From what everyone else is saying its not worth it to change the IM

Be careful with that. I have the intake manifold and love it, if your going to be spraying a healthy amount on your car you don't want to risk blowing apart the plastic manifold.

When I was running the 75Hp shot before on the stock IM, I only had the single pirhana nozzle and it was fine. Made me kind of hesitant at times. Going direct port this time around. Putting to much money into the car to end up puddling and blowing everything to pieces.

CFM was a little high priced on the crowers, so were a few other places. Ended up lucking out with the crowers I have on the way. Got them cheaper than anywhere else I could find. And were the Cosworth stage 1's coming ea/$299 or both intake and exhaust for $299

I think i just want to stick with stage 1 cams as well, then im about done with mods for my car if it all goes well.

Maybe the cam will help the intake i screwed up by taking out the tumble flaps [rolleyes]
