so right now im alpha header full race exhaust fp rrc j35 and I have a exedy stage 1 in the trunk, I was thinking of doing a dc5 flywheel, rrc oil pump conversion, some rdx injectors, an ati damper or fluiddamper(which is better?), and some sort like used z1 or tsx cams to replace my z3 cams, could I upgrade valve springs and rev a bit higher if I make power? Would this set up be good for the dd street? or what could I change out? or should I just buy a used ct-e charger? Not planning on being fast just a fun dd till I can afford a next all out project.

well after some digging seems ati is the better one, Just worried about changing out the oil pump and loosing the balance shafts to absorb the vibrations. I have seen something about some crazy valve spring combo off a rsx and a sk2, was looking into a set of drop in cams?

well i ended up selling the cams and hybrid tensioner and put the clutch and flywheel in the car it feels a lot better deff upgrade the stock units are prob 20lbs heavier stock pressure plate is crazy heavy. car feels much smoother now also put in the prothane poly f-lca bushings and that is great as well no more popping from my front suspension.
