Hey everyone! As of right now my RSX-S is making 222whp & 165 tq with K-Tuner ECU, RBC, CAI, Headers, Exhaust, and Ferrea Valves, Supertech springs & retainers, as well as some other mods. Im currently looking for some good quality cams for ALL MOTOR applications, I'm not very familiar with brands or stages in the cams section. My question is, which brands are better or at least most recommended for my supporting mods as well as power output, WITHOUT changing pistons, rods etc. For the time being. Thanks to anyone who can help me out! Good day!

good numbers with stock cams, what cars do you beat on the streets?
Thanks man! Im beating stock STi's, raced a couple BMW 335 won by about 2 car lengths, crushing the 350&370z's, raced 2 Mustangs 2015 GT and won by about 1 car so id say its pretty good!

What's funny? Im not fast enough? Unfourtunately those are the cars i've raced. Worth mentioning that my tranny synchros are completely busted and every time I shift to 2nd & 3rd gear it completly grinds on me. But meh, to me its fast enough...

Seems quick enough to me as well especially, for a daily and for sure enough power for the local weekly time attacks near me. I'm hoping for 240whp with similar mods with drag cartel dic in a k24a.

If you have VT, why didn't you install it all at once? Anyways, the stages of cams are irrelevant as skunk2 stage 1 is slightly more aggressive than Drag Cartel 2.2 which is a stage 2 camshaft or Skunk2 Ultra stage 1 is more aggressive than Drag Cartel 3.2. Also condition of motor, weather, Humidity, how well the mods match each other all are factors of power output. I typically dont care for dyno numbers as long as the car runs hard and shows in the 1/4mile.

I'm not being a doucher but there's absolutely NO WAY you beat a 2015 mustang GT as they run 12.7 at 112 in stock form which means you would need turbo to keep up with it. Either you ran a base mustang with GT badging or he wasnt racing... just saying.
