while you're at it... look in the for sale forum... get the ctr cams that "colorpros" has for sale.

the ctr intake is slightly more aggressive

i would spend up to maybe $2000-maybe $2500 total on my head. (cams, valves, springs, retainers) i plan to build an all motor sleeper, daily driver.

I got a great deal on my valvetrain from ALLJDM. My budget was smaller than yours for my head but you should be able to add Skunk2 cams to what I got for less than $2000. I got Skunk2 Valves, Springs, Retainers, and an Intake manifold from him. Great prices.

I haven't installed everything yet, most of my engine is at the machine shop, what isn't there is in the mail. So I am not sure about a power gain, probably not much because I couldn't afford to buy new cams. I am still running the ITR cams.

thats cool you're still doing the valve train, that way when you can afford cams, it will be just a drop in affair.

That is what I though, plus I need new valves anyway. Some of my exhaust valves came a little bent. So I figuered that if I was changing valves I might as well wait until I could afford new springs/retainers as well. I can't wait until I can afford some Skunk2 Stage 2 cams.

I couldn't tell you, send a PM to ALLJDM. He is a great guy and really easy to work with.

superstreet magazine is written by a bunch of idiots.

ctr and itr cams will make a difference, although you'll want to do springs and retainers while you're at it.

well, sport compact car admitted to having added 4 quarts of oil to a motor that already had 4 quarts of oil. so its my opinion that the majority of the magazines we read (besides car and driver, grassroots motorsports and a few others) are run by people who are good at marketing and advertising, not tuning cars.

i've seen and read a lot of things in both SCC and SS that would never be done by any experienced mechanic.
