since you dont want to change springs, and youre spraying...i would call CMS and ask them what they reccomend for you, they can probably make you a stage 1 cam thats nitrous specific....no matter what cams you get though, you will need to have the car dyno tuned...and i reccomend replacing the springs...but its not my motor....goodluck

also, for a 150 shot you should be dyno tuned as well...the most ive heard the stock tune being good for is a 100 shot. dont wanna lean it out and blow it up

I'm in the same situation as you. I have a bolt on 04 gt with a 100 shot, and want a set of cams that i don't have to change the springs on. I've done countless hours of research in this area as well.

I'm going with Bullet Racing cams. Call Nick at Modular Head Shop. He has Bullet grind them to his specs, and they have some really nice grinds that don't require a spring change, and work well n/a or with nitrous.

I would never do stage 1 cams. If I'm going to spend the money I would make it stage 2 as a minimum. Check out hitech stage 2.

first thing is make sure you know what your future power plans are for the car. Go from there.

why would you not take the next step and just buy stage 2? you will hardly get the cam "lope" with a stage 1 cam, or the real performance you want. Even my stage 2's are "fairly" mild in regards to cams.

BTW, REPLACE YOUR VALVE SPRINGS. DON'T CHEAP OUT. ESP IF YOU DO STAGE 2. IT IS AS IMPORTANT THE CAMS ITSELF.

+1 Bingo!

Me for example: All I wanted was 300 but it was cheaper to make 400 with a blower. Then I blew my engine. Then it was just a plain rebuild....$8,000 later I've got a 600rwhp (ish) car sitting in my garage collecting dust because it's too fast and I should have had more realistic goals for the type of driver/racer I am.
