Can some one help me out? i need some info. what cams would work best wit a k24/k20 12:5.1 pistons aftermarket rods, race headers, custom intake w/ velocity stack, 3' exhaust, upgraded valvetrain, ported rbc. i know ips cams are the best out there are. but is there any other options out there? im trying to make between 270hp and 280hp. i know some one can help me with this.

by the way how are the blueprint cams?

stage 3's would make good power in that setup. stage 2's would work good too but unless its your daily driver go with stage 3s just be careful advancing the vtc depending on what pistons you have. some cant go past 20 degrees unless the pistons have deep reliefs.

I have CP pistons and it is going to be my daily driver. will there be a big difference in power between the 2's and the 3's???

maybe a few hp but not a huge difference. alot more top-end where that k24 block shouldn't be revving to if you want it to be reliable. i'd go with the stage 2s and double check on the pistons and make sure the valve reliefs are deep enough before you go advancing the vtc 50 degrees.

Would it be a big risk reving high even with a type s oil pump and some work done to the crank? i had it knife edged micro polished and balanced

I think for the power you want to make you can try several companies(i.e. Blue Print, Brian Crowers, RCrews) stage 2 cams.

if you have a good header and some other mods you should be good to go.

or look for a used set of ips k2's

hope that helps

Thanx for the info. i have a set of blueprint stage 2 brand new and i didnt know if those were good enough for the type of power i want. i bought these so long ago and didnt know much about them. besides the mods i posted im using a ported rbc bdl 70mm tb and a 4-1 ssr race header wit a custon 3'inch exhaust. but someone on here told me to sell those cams and buy some skunk2 stage 3's.

i guess i cant go wrong with either set of cams. i like ips cams but the price is kinda high.
