What set of cams???

I'm looking to get cams soon, and to do it in the cheapest way possible. Comp cams from AM is pretty much what im lookin at, stage 1 or 2.

What im gettin at is how much HP am i lookin to gain if i add cams with the mods i currently have are: throttle body and plenum, cai, exhaust, intake manifold, and 3:55's.

Also which stage will requre nothing big to be replaced?

You will need comps valve springs, and a tune. I think you should pick up around 30hp at peak. Throw a 125 shot on it, and you'll have a beast...

4.10's,axel exchange driveshaft, 100 dry shot, K&N CAI, diablo custom tunes, cheapest steeda delete plates, drag thrust wheels, hurst shifter, bbk tuned headers-off road x pype-single chamber flowmaster muff, steeda sport springs, upr sway bar delete, Lakewood upper and lowers.

if you're not changing heads, get stage 1 or your a/f will be off on either low or hi end. stage 1 with tune should give 30hp or so, give or take.
