Add our KDD chromoly pushrods to your kit for just $225 ($299 value). The stock plus (Stage 1) and Street Performance (Stage 2) cam is considered a "drop in" meaning no special machining or valve reliefs in pistons are required as long as the heads have at least .020" valve recession and piston protrusion is less than .030". Stage 3 cams will require .100" valve reliefs in pistons. By changing the valve opening and closing events -when the valves open and close in relation to top dead center, piston pumping speeds, and maximizing efficiency for the given application, our camshaft really shine at evacuating the exhaust gas out of the cylinder, which aids in spooling the turbo quicker, resulting in better cylinder filling and lower EGT's. Most customers also report 1-2mpg gains with this camshaft with our stage 1 and 2 camshafts.
