Default whats next?

i have a 95 EX and im looking to get a little more power but i dont want to spend big bucks. i have right now I/H/E and i was thinking about doing new cam gears. will cam gears give me some more hp and torque? would it be worth getting them? any other suggestions for cheap power upgrades would be nice. wut i mean by cheap is anything under $300ish.

Yeah cams would give you hp and torque boost, but would prolly wear down your valves after a while. Though if you only went like a stage 1 cam you should be fine with stock valvetrain.

no Chimera, cam GEARS.

they can give a bit of a gain, but the gains arent really worth it at this point. go for a Random Technologies high flow cat. it will give you way more gains, for about 200-230 bucks. its the best one ive found. stay away from the cheapo ones on ebay, they arent cats, they are resonators, and are very illegal.

most of your power will come from your i/h/e
