cams go from 100, to 600...

not much point if you don't have at least a high flowing exhaust though.

id recomend you get a vernier gear with it, and you may need valve springs depending on how big you go...

put it this way.

Get the cam without extractors there will be a slight improvement, but nothing impressive..

then when you put new extractors on, it'll unleash it, and you'll think it was the extractors alone.

yeah def do the extractors first and a high flowing exhaust. that alone will improve it pretty well then go the cam just to top it off
