alright...so i've seen a boat load of posts that talk about cams.....i'm still a serious noob when it comes to internals.....i've read more than once that a set of cams, exhaust, and a tune are a great way to go and you ain't goin' poor to pay for it all.....can someone lead me in the direction for a good set of cams? or what to look for? i would love some hefty power and have a great daily driver....what do you guys think? thanks

also you might want to think about a cai, tune or exhaust before you go for cams. But thats just my thought.
it would make more sense to do this....

plus you'll get much better results from the cams

and about tunning....do it last, especially if you plan to get stage II cams, tunning is highly recommended. if you get stage I, it's recommended, but not a necessity :)

I was thinking about cams too, but if you were to get say a turbo, you would need completley different cams and tuning. Just my .2....

The header is going to make the car hella loud. trust me. I love the way the car pulls though with intake, exhaust, race header, flex, tune, bs delete, and crane II cams. It pulls pretty hard. Yes the valve springs are a bitch but it's worth it in the end. [driving] Also if you go with the stage II cams you will need tuning at that time. The stage Is will be aiight with the stock ecu.
