just get wade to grind you one up, cheap and easy, if you get a cam for a manual vehicle and yours is auto it should be nice and lumpy!

um as far as i know RPD stg3 is as big as you can go. (well before major engine modification is necessary) its lumpy as, pulls like a 13yr old school boy and the price is very good..

Ive got an RPD stage 3 in mine, and I would defiantely stand by it.. and if you think it sounds like a lancer, well, lets just say Lancers run away from fright. definately lumpy, and definately pulls, and nothing bigger on the market.

Since your car is a manual (like mine), you will see a HUGE improvement....


Cheers

As far as Im concerned stage 3 is the biggest without modifying the bottom end.

Cheers

lol @ "biggest on stock bottom end"

As far as bigger cams, there are many but they are not advertised widely, I guess because cam grinders dont want people who dont understand what all the numbers mean to buy them. The crow 539 for example - 610 thou lift, 247 duration @ 50 on 106 LSA. They also grind the 546 'race cam' up to 650 thou lift.

IMO its tack times and mph that count, not big cam specs or tough exhaust sounds. The only time I have seen from a 'stage 3' wasnt that impressive (let me know if there are more as I would like to know).

1521a isnt a huge cam. I picked it because it still has ok bottom end and good midrange which is important as the car is my daily driver. It sounded like this at idle, although it is a fair bit smoother now with the MS2 - http://users.on.net/~jasiunas/mark/CT.mp3

Its not anywhere near the biggest cam out there, but IMO its a good compromise that suits my needs.


And yes should have kept the coupe!
