Default power gain?

I was curious to know if i would see a power gain if i purchase the Crower Stage 1 cam for my D16y8 and would Vtec be louder? (not saying im doing it for the sound of Vtec)! Thanks

Stage one would give you some power, maybe 8hp. They advertize 12 I think but you never get what they advertize on any kind of aftermarket part.

The nice thing about the stage one is you get a gain across the board and it's about half the cost of the next stage up because you don't have to get springs and retainers.

if your after a little more power that the stg1 will give you then go for it. if you want more power then save up and go with a stg 2. hell you could go pm7 pistons and a stg3 after flycutting the pistons.........this would make for a nice very fun street motor.

If you're looking for a nice gain without dumping a wad of cash, then yes. A cam actually has a pretty good $/HP ratio.

a stg3 will make your car idle like hell. it would be tough to street one. i'd save up for stg2 if i were you. big cam without loosing streetability.

If you get a stg 1. could you get the springs and retainers as well or would this be deemed expensive and unnecesary for a street vehicle?
