That's cheap compared to what us Gen2's would have to pay for custom grind cams.

there a reason why you decided on blower cams? i decided on stage two n/a cams on my build. it pushed more power going with stage two cams cuz the blower cams exhaust side isn't as aggressive as the intake side and i needed the exhaust side to flow out just as fast the intake was coming in.

Are you sure you aren't thinking about their turbo grind? The exhaust side is more aggressive with the blower cams (stage 2 exhaust + stage 1 intake). I mainly went with them because I chose a smaller pulley over reving the **** out of the motor.

And no they aren't in yet lol, I just got them. Hopefully I'll be able to start my build before the end of the year now that I have all the parts

Haha it's cool. Give and take I guess. Gen 2's have a stronger block but we get to pay out the ass for head work lol. Hope the cams net you good gains

Got rid of that crappy chambered muffler and picked up a Hahn muffler. I'm no longer embarrassed of my exhaust, it's nice and quiet now

I would think It would sound nasty with that tip. I had an magnaflow tip like that and sounded bad. Cut it off and put an resonated tip on and changed the sound completly

I might have asked this before, but is this a repaint or factory color?

It's pretty quiet actually with the resonator I have. Kinda sounds like a stock LSJ IMO lol
