you might as well ask us what color is best too, everyone has there opinion
a cam is way too important to the engine performance to just be asking someone you dont know, dont know there qualifications, dont know anything about them to be putting your trust in cam selection.
first off a cam is what brings all the parts together.it makes your heads, intake shortblock work together.
a cam shouldnt be a cookie cutter part.
for some reason everyone thinkgs a "good" cam will have that classic cam sound, people also think that sound means its got a good amount of lift, when in reality the sound is overlap of the valves being open at the same time.
a custom cam wont just make more power, it uses fuel and air more efficent which turns into more fuel efficent, can have it made for emmisions if your state makes you pass it.
your leaving alot on the table with an OTS cam.
also for the
I already have the TFS stage 1 cam and if I go with the TFS stage 2 I can use the same pushrods that I currently have according to TFS tech. Am I really going to be hurting myself if I do go with the TFS stage 2?
he still has to check pushrod length and its still a 50/50, TFS probably says that because it will be close enough to use (it might be dead on, i dont know thats why you have to still check)
the extra money you spend on a custom cam will not only be well spent, but it will save you money in the long run
