Default what type of cams for '00 rs

what type of cams should i go with in my 2000 2.5rs, the mods i have are short ram intake, full ignition system, headers with stromung track pipe and greddy exhaust, 11 pund flywheel with stage 3 clutch, short throw shifter with sti linkage, super AFC 2, rota 15' sub zeros with falken azenas (they weigh pretty much nothing), and fully pully kit. i want somthing very agressive that gives me the most power to the ground. does anyone have any ideas?

Sell the ignition upgrade. It's a waste of money. And I vote TWE as well.

PAECO is cheaper, and aside from those two I hear COBB cams are nice. Someone had one break though...

Yeah, that someone sent the broken cam to Cobb and they determined that he was running it with the lash incorrectly adjusted...

10K mi on my Cobb cams and 151hp to the wheels at 5000ft...

I didn't know that. Your results are my inspiration to keep going N/A, BTW (and a lot of other people's too, I suspect
Except I plan on getting even more HP out than you because I want to reflash my ECU (advanced ignition timing, higher redline) and tune the A/F ratio with an Apexi S-AFC 2 on a dyno. I also recall you don't have a high flow cat. converter?

Nope. I have a high flow cat in my Cobb Headers. What I don't have for now is a track pipe. And it sounds like you wanna bench race. My car will be reflashed and dyno tuned by Trey as soon as they finish the AP for the RS. Afterall, I would be an idiot to run an EJ257 block with 12:1 CR pistons without tweaking the ECU...

BTW,
There is no need for an AFC if you have a reflash. That is redundant...

Wow, you are running 12:1 compression?
*Bows down* OK, I guess I won't be beating your dyno results after all
Re: AFC; I will probably have to send my ECU in for the reflash, so I doubt the A/F ratio will be very well tuned without the tuner being able to measure it and adjust on the fly... I am hoping the S-AFC will take care of that...
Plus, I just love the way it looks sitting on my dash

Depends if your car wants to be picky or not, mine throws a missfire code for all 4 cyl's, but other people's does fine. I don't really care about the light, But the twe cams makes aa huge difference! I'm very happy with them.

My car does not throw a CEL because of the cams. I only know this because I took off my headers a couple of weeks ago to pass emissions. 2000mi w/o a CEL. But as soon as the headers go back on I am pretty sure my 0420 will return...

PO420 is the cat. converter code. To fix this you need the mil o2 sensor resistor. This light is not caused by the header being a thiner metal and cooling the exhaust down before it reaches the cat. The resistor will fix this, its not caused by the cams.
you can by this resistor here.

Mike,
You aren't telling me anything that I didn't already know. The point of what I mentioned was that the cams are not throwing any codes on the car. That is what this guy wanted to know about. I just explained exactly how I knew it wasn't the cams because many of the active members of this board know that I got the cams AFTER the headers. And I was trying to emphasize that at some point in an NA build you will start seeing CEL's and generally learn to live with them...

Sorry I miss understood you. I got a cel after put the JE pistons in it. It runs great, but the computer doesn't really know whats going on.
