Default Thinking about cams and other mods

Hey guys I am thinking of doing cams (aggressive), headers, pulley and a tune. Im thinking of keeping my mid-pipe and stock mufflers. Can anyone recommend cams and around about price I would pay? Also a good brand of headers and a pulley size? Thanks for your input.

Unless you just want the lumpy idle, there are lots of better ways to spend your money than cams in my opinion. They are usually the last thing that guys do, simply because of the cost. JDM has a new camshaft package out for about $2300 that claims a gain of 100 horsepower. By the time you get them installed you will have close to $4K in the project.

You can bolt on a VMP TVS supercharger in about 2 hours and gain over 150rwhp for right at $3K. Of course you won't have the big cam idle of sound, but the car will make more power and torque for less money. Just my .02, but the cam swap is a lot of headache for the power you will gain.
