    i have a vortech sq trim sitting in my room, and am going to get that installed with a PI intake, a boost pipe, and a mini race bpv. Once i get this dyno tuned and installed i am going to begin to save up for a paxton a/a intercooler and some blower cams. I have the cams down to two choices...just wondering which you guys would go with? both are close to $800 total (cams and springs)...

    1) Crower stage II NON PI S/C cams

    2) Custom grind MPH cams


    I have been told by some to get the crowers because a couple buddies of mine have said they heard i can get close to 35rwhp from them...but i know mph is a great company too??? just let me know which one you guys would go with..thanks

    I think either would kick ass!

    I'd go custom, if it were me. but seriously either one would be sweet.
    I've heard a lot of good feedback on the crowers.... and MPH kicks ass.

    So, I really didn't answer your question... lol.

    My buddy has the crowers, stage 3 in his car.

    I'd go with a custom grind, it would probably be more efficient?!

    Anyone else agree?

    thats what i was originally thinking...until my buddy told me he got 35rwhp from the crowers...i can't imagine getting any more than that from just blower cams?? :dunno:

    If you have an option then you always go with a custom grind. Tim at MPH knows his shit and i bet you gain more HP with a set of cams he custom specs for you.
