Default CMS cams

im rebuilding a 2000gt motor and need some cams to buy. im going with stage 2 CMS cams. couple questions: could i still run them with out a tune?(would it still run fine w/o one) and would i need to notch my pistons?

i was looking at comp stage 2 cams and it requires notching. all all stage two cams that way or just those. and what was the other good cam company tech something. or something like that. im blanking out on the other good cam company.

Hi-Tech cams are what you're thinking of.

Go with Cushman. Jim is a great guy. Extremely helpful. I just bought a set of custom grounds from him.

Shoot him a PM. Stage 2.5 Blower cams don't require the pistons to be notched, not sure about the ones you are looking at though.

Yes 10 inch terror and my understanding per Jim is that all his cams don't require notched pistons.

Those cams do not need notched pistons. You will need a tune or your going to have idle problems.

I have the stage 3 blower cams and didn't need to notch my pistons.

what kinda of tune do i need. i was thinking about this last night. would a hand held tuner work. i was looking at the diablosports predator tuner and you can adjust fuel and timing for low rpm idle speed. would that tuner work. or would i need to go all out with a piggyback or stand alone unit.
