Skunk2 Cams

Which Cams should I get for my Lude?
They're all around 600 on JHPUSA.com and there are a lot of options. I want to get the best I can for the money.
Any input?
Sorry if someones posted this already, couldn't find in search.

we would need to know your current mods and your future mods and what you are looking for out of the cams you get.

Re: Skunk2 Cams

depends on what you wanna do with your engine - if you dont want to bother with upgrading your valve train then stick to the stage 1 tuner series cams and cam gears..if your planning on going turbo then you may want the turbo cams but will have to do the rest of the valvetrain upgrade too i.e springs/retainers

Re: Skunk2 Cams

Well, I'm still debating whether I want to Turbo or not. If I got the turbo cams, would it hurt my engine at all if I never got the Turbo?

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt your engine, but it certainly wouldnt give you the horsepower gains your looking for. Go turbo first, then figure out your cam situation. You can run a turbo on stock cams and have no problems at all. Skunk2 makes nice turbo cams, but putting them on a naturally aspirated motor won't do much for you bro.

Re: Skunk2 Cams

Ok. Thanks. It'll be a long while before I get a turbo so I think I may go ahead and get a set, just what kind would I want for N/A? I'm not planning on doing much right now, I'm still in High School and without a job atm.

Re: Skunk2 Cams

keep saving til you know exactly what you wanna do with the car. why waste $600 on cams now if you end up boosting in a year, and not only are the cams are useless, but you coulda bought a turbo with that 600.

we're speaking from experience here.

Re: Skunk2 Cams

modifying a car is not a piece by piece thing unless you have a preset list you are using.

its all about the package. if the package does not work well together then you wasted your money and didnt do enough research.

Re: Skunk2 Cams

if u get aftermarket cams. You MIGHT need a better valvetrain (springs, retainers, etc.) depending if you do stage1's, or stage 2's, or pro1's or pro2's. You won't have enough compression to make good power on stage 3's

Whatever cam u get, will probably benefit from adjustable cam gears, because when its zero'd out, ur not taking full advantage of them. Then you'd also need the car tuned, because aftermarket cams are useless unless you get tuned for em. You could suffer all kinds of driving issues from just installing, and not tuning a set of camshafts.

Keep saving, plan out ur project before you start throwing $600 parts at it
This is just my $.02
