    get some ctr pistons then buy cams...i think if you go with something too big...youll be overcamed ....also rocket cams are the shit...900 bucks for cams and spring set

    the best for you right now at this point are Type R cams or at the very most Stage 1 cams. You don't have enough compression to take advantage of anything higher than a stage 1. Just get some ITR or CTR cams. Skunk2 Stage 1 cams would be ok. and with these cams that i mentioned you can get away with using your stock valve train just as long as you DO NOT go past the stock redline of 8200.

    basically yeah, to fully take advantage stage 2's you'd need, IMO, at least 11.5:1

    you'll clog it.... if it takes it in, it needs to spit it out too.

    go for a jog. take a straw with you

    you can breathe in through your mouth, but you must exhale through the drinking straw.

    let me know how far you get before you pass out.
