FR2's= great all around cams to really wake up your DD or autocross machine[thumb]
I've had them in for 3-4 years now and love them.

better in what way?

better for a DD yes...

better for more power...no

you will have a better DD power band with 2s. with 3s it will be a high RPM powerband.

thats what i thought too, but for some reason some FF's tuner said that he couldve made more power with stg. 2 cams. i dont know if he meant a certain brand or whatever but i was just qurious as to if there is any truth in this, ya know? not trying to discredit anyone just trying to figure out why this is so.

Crower II's Low end torque is a little low, but right about the same as stock, these cams start making really good power above about 3500 or so, give or take, not like vtec, but a definite notice. I can't state for sowone w/o headwork as i have headwork done, but its a whole different beast north of 4k.

so you can boost with the FR 3's? do you have to have gears to boost with them? i didnt know if you had to tune the overlap out or if they were able to boost with the stock cam timing.

from the way that FiFoci was talking about the FR 3's maybe the FR 2's would be good for boost too.

do you happen to know what kind of overlap the FR 2's have?
