I have been slowly modding my ATX 2000 zx3. I am thinkin I might get some Cams and Cam gears. Right now I have a Borla Exhaust, AEM CAI, and the Excalibrater 2 flasher from FS. Also I have an SVT header on the way. What cams would be a good choice for everyday driving and a decent amount of speed without screwing anything up? And is getting gears and cams worth it?

cams rock. although I don't have an Auto. you should be fine with most stage 1's
I feel that FR 2's are fairly mild & would work, and those willl get you moving down the road,

but i would wait to see what the ATX boys in here have say that have already been there.[thumb]

Ok. Where would be the best place to go to get these cams? I went on the Ford Racing website and they show $375 EACH for the stage 2/street performance cams...That about the average price? Or is it possible to find em cheaper? Also, I did not see the Automatic Transmission cams...Other than the stage 1s...

John Bleakley Ford in GA usually has great prices on FR parts. The cams are listed for $302.50. I think for shipping you add 10% so that's way cheaper than FR MSRP.

Is says for the stage 2s that they are for a manual with headers and free flow exhaust. Being that I have an Automaice tranny and a Borla catback with an SVT header on the way... Ya think I am still able to use these?

What do you mean by "rag"? Cuz I really don't wanna have to worry about anything happening if I spend the money to get these cams... lol
