    Cams don’t hurt the car unless improperly sized/installed. That being said, there are a lot of cam choices out there so make sure you get a blower cam that will work for your combo...custom cams are best of course, but your setup is pretty common so it should be easy to find a good off the shelf cam like Laffs has. After cams a new tune will definitely be needed.

    I have Comp blower cams in my 2V. All Comp 2V cams have .550 lift but offer different durations so the installer needs to check for clearance. A spring upgrade is strongly recommended...the Comp Beehive springs are affordable but the install take time.

    It's not a cheap way to go just for sound.
    Fair enough but adding power isnít bad either. Laffs was saying I need to know what setup I want. Now clearly I have no clue. So could you recommend a set up ? I want a lump cam.
    Currently I have all stock internals with a V2 supercharger and intercooler. 3.73 in rear with stage 2 racing clutch

    Cushman is a good person to talk to...take his advice.

    I listed a link, this is a great cam for your car. On his website you'll hear the sound of his cams.

    http://www.cushmanmotorsports.com/cm...5-blower-cams/

    Keep in mind, you'll need: new valve cover gaskets, new timing cover gaskets, new crank bolt unless yours is reusable, new chain guides if yours are original, new cam bolts, new valve springs...ask Cushman for a full list of parts.

    If I find a 03/04 Cobra shortblock I'd swap that in and turn the boost up. Otherwise I don't really want to spend the time and money to have the 2v built up for get another 100 or so HP on the street. For what I want from this car going even crazier will only result in more headaches I feel.

    If you've always wondered what it would be like to do a wide open pull and end up with 4 neutral gears sure, other wise not really.
