Default RE: how much hp do cams add

how come in your sig it says your turbo'd?

for your car it would only be one cam because it's a sohc (single over head cam). It will help a little bit, depends a lot on the motor and other mods. really hard to say.

Usually people upgrade parts in stages, a stage 1 cam you wont need to upgrade your valvetrain. But if you go higher you will have to, and would be a good idea to upgrade other parts internally as well. Theres a certain kind you want to get too, there are two main different kinds of material used to make them... can't remember off the top of my head. But for hondas you don't want to get the other kind. Search around for more info.

A cam would be more of a gateway mod if you dont have anything else. Meaning, you wont notice a whole lot of power with just the cam, but once you start addin stuff after it your power increase will be higher. After the cam some things that would be a big benifit would be a tune,intake and exhaust. Also, an adjustable cam gear wouldnt be a bad idea either, its not absolutely needed but it wont hurt anything.

+1 on whats with the turbo stuff in your sig.

From what I know and my experience, cam gears are for tuning you car with internal item already on it. You'll see/feel little or no extra power with just a Cam Gear. However, Cam shaft would make your car rip like no other while in the higher rpm's. Add a cam gear to get the most out of the cam shaft. My Crower stage 2 sounds amazing at idle, a little rumble as I am sittin at a light. Good Luck with it!
