    Why do you need to know why they suck? If they suck they suck.

    Have you ever heard of XS Power? They're right up there with APC and SS Auto-Chrome (Auto-Crap?) in terms of quality. Their turbos and turbo components (blow-off valves, waste-gates, etc.) are known for shoddy construction and falling apart, so I really doubt that their cams are something you'd want to invest in.

    Seriously, do a Google search for "XS Power", "crap", and "shit" and see what comes up...

    Oh god, they are making cams now, thats scary.

    Their turbo's are decent nowadays, the just need to get away from the glue. I had to take mine all apart and scrape the glue off and use some parts from a buddy's old turbonetics t3/t4 to make it work and feel safe about it, all this after replacing everything with garrett or turbonetics internals.

    Basically, spend the money the first time and get the good stuff, name brand does matter.

    how so?? yea, they're good for a inexpensive N/A build, but thats about it.. i'm assuming you're referring to the $400 price range
