    whatever the hell the manufacturer of the specific product says it is

    there are no set guidelines of what makes one item "stage 2" and another "stage 3"

    so aside from comparing like product from the same manufacturer (ie: cams from Skunk2 stage 2 and stage 3) it is an absolutly worthless unit of comparisson


    as a general rule... when comparing like product from the same manufacturer, the higher number will be more "agressive"

    but this is not set in stone either

    basicly "stages" are fucking worthless

    there is a HUGE difference between stock ITR cams and JUN stage 3s
    skunk cams are good for street use because they retain the stock profiles for the low lobes (if you stay out of VTEC then you get decent fuel economy and if tuned right you wont have emissions issues)
    for decent gains and street use i would say go with the Skunk 2 stage 2 cams

    "STAGE 3: Full-Race Cam profiles are designed for purpose built race engines with high-rpm capabilities only! Upgraded valvetrain and extensive engine work is required for proper functioning of the Full-Race profile. Compression and engine flow must be significantly increased in order to ensure the proper functioning of the camshafts. Full-Race camshafts should be installed and tuned by professional engine builders only!"
