Skip the stage 2 heads, and just get the Clubracer cams if you want to go fast. You save 2000 dollars and your car will be faster, get stronger valve springs and a Haltec and you will be even faster for the same money. If you can't stand to have a CEL, then you may want to spend the the money for the stage 2 heads.

My car passed a tailpipe idle test with Clubracer cams, with the stock exhaust with no problems, it idled 10-15 minutes before the test.

cheeRS,

Greg

Cams alone arent going to force air through restictive heads.. In order to make the most power, people will have to have a decent intake->TB or TBs->Manifold->Cams->Heads->Block capable of sustaining a higher redline->Bore the exhaust ports->Headers>High flow cat->midpipe->Muffler that dosent look like a folgers can so you dont get pulled over.

except that your math is flawed since the EJ25 SOHC are not all the restrictive.

Like above, the heads are not the biggest problem. The cams are the biggest limiting factor in the stock car, before the head, TB, intake manifold, everything aside from the exhaust and intake. Heads are not. Cobb themselves comment on the heads ability to flow on their website.

Yes, in order to get the MOST gains what you wrote is true, but that was not the question. The question was:

The answer is "no" unless you absolutly cannot have a CEL (then you might still get one anyway). By just going with the racier cam, you will be faster than the car with the larger stock profile cam, and worked heads, for significently less money.

By half a second.

cheeRS,

Greg

No. Thre are Three Cams on their site, the Street Preformer, Club Racer and Race Profile. The Street Preformer is the mild cam that is suppose to not upset the stock ECU and throw a CEL. They usually doesn't but sometimes it does.
