    I'm tearing apart my Mini-Me in a week or so and I'm just exploring my options.

    I was thinking of getting a peformance cam for my Z6 head.

    So there is "stage 1", "stage 2", and "stage 3" usually right?

    So "stage 1" is like street and "stage 3" is full blown racing, this is the way I understand it.

    Since my Mini-Me is only a DD I think only a "stage 1".

    If I go "stage 1" could I use all the other stock head components?

    How would a "stage 1" cam affect my fuel economy?

    Thanks, Brad

    So basically its well worth the money.

    I know you upgraded your valve train but my rev-limiter is set at 7200 RPM so if I got a 59100 or 59300 would I have to upgrade my valve train?
