So far as the power output, I am not convinced that you could acutally notice the difference between a stage 2 and 1 without a dyno.

The biggest difference is the stage 2s do loose a bit more down low TQ. Idle to say 1500 RPM sometimes the car will jump a bit and act stupid if I don't slip the clutch right.

The 2s will sound more agressive, but don't expect a BB chevy cam sound. They sound good, but its not old school camming sound.
did you do the cams before supercharging your car?
also do you have a sound clip of your car

my stang is in the shop now for cams and valve spring install. i got the comp cams and beehive springs with retainers on ebay as a package deal for $667. i got a quote from a local dyno shop to put them in for $600. once they got the car, they told me labor will be more. thanks for telling me then, huh? i am now looking for a certified time for the complete install, on the web, so i can argue my case. anyways the store were i got the cams on ebay was discount performance parts out of MS. good luck in whatever you choose!
I have read on a couple of threads that Ford allows 7 hours for a cam swap (without springs).
Go to your Ford dealer and ask what they would charge for a cam/spring install and if it is lower than what your shop is saying try to beat them down.

Also, if the shop you are at is going to do a deadly job and they have a great reputationthen paying a little more might be worth it. Many times in life you get what you pay for!

BTW, I was at the shop that is going to do my install and I told them that Ford allows 7 hours and he said it may take him a little more than that depending on what he encounters during the install. He said "I am more interesting in doing it right than saving you money". I said "you are the guy for my cam job".
