Anyone have the stage 1 cam installed or know of anyone who does? I am thinking it's going to be one of my first mods for the new car (when I get it).
The final cost of me getting a sidewinder /w installation was about $1,600. I bought mine from 402motoring.com. They sell every thing you need to do a cam swap.So who recommend the Sidewinder over the Tomahawk? What is the average install time for a cam for a shop that does a lot of work on the chargers, such as HHP? I'm trying to see if their install packages are worth buying the cam with the install or just get the cam elsewhere and the install separately.
Where did you hear this from? This is completely opposite from every thing I've ever heard about FRI cams. FRI cams are by far the most popular cams for these cars and there is a reason for that.Id go with HHPs cams There a better designed cam. and from what I have heard less driveabilty issues then you do with the fri's cams
I'd agree with Metgo. The 260 and Sidewinder are comparable driving cams. LSA, overlap, are nearly the same. I'd guess, bet money that the Sidewinder is worth a few more HP's. I've heard of very little if any issues with driveability from either of these cams. You need the tuner, or else your screwed. Get the cam, get the diablo, get a dyno tune...voila...Done.
Hey man how's it going? Any idea when you are getting another Charger? How's metro?
Anyway, I personally have spoken with the HHP guys and they are great guys. Not anything against FRi but HHP is right up the road from us. I am thinking in the next 6 months to a year I'll be going with stage 1.
"FOR ME, I'LL STICK TO THE PEOPLE WITH EXPERIENCE..." well Metgo has the experience. He paid his hard earned bucks to buy and install the cam. He operates the vehicle with the cam. Ya gotta go with the guy the uses the equipment, folks.Id go with HHPs cams There a better designed cam. and from what I have heard less driveabilty issues then you do with the fri's cams
I mean are you gonna buy a cam from just a shop or a shop that uses the winner of the jegs engine masters challenge 2 years in a row? if you want racing experience Tony (bes) is the worlds champ in his class in NMRA and HHP head Tech Bruce michle is the nmca prostock champ for this year
as for the tomahawk isnt this the cam that is now being pulled out of trojans stroker?
For me Ill stick to the people with the experience
that cam was redesigned yo run in our cars the comp cams had a lot of issues tooI don't see why anyone would pay $499 for a Comp Cam 260. I have seen them on sale for as little as $349. It seams to me that HHP just took Comp Cams stage 1 and added their name in front of it.
