    I have read alot lately that guys are putting pi intakes and cams on npi engines with npi heads. I understand this is good for cars running superchargers that dont want the increase in CR. I also see people saying swap in stage 1 cams instead of pi cams. But after researching this I found that a pi cam has the same specs as a stage 1 npi cam. So you might aswell just put in a pi cam instaed of going stage 1 for $575.

    According to that link the PI and the stage 1's look almost exactly the same.

    I've heard a vt stage 1 cam in a p.i. motor and it didn't sound stock. Go on VT's site take a look at theres.

    Yes you heard it in a PI motor
    Non pi cams are different, so if you leave the npi heads and swap the pi intakes the pi cams are the same as the non pi stage 1 cams

    VT cams are for PI heads not non pi
