    i use them on the wife's car. here's the dyno graph after installing them with the stock cam. on stock tune as well. and yes, they are worth the money.

    dyno 9 before
    dyno 11 500 miles later
    dyno 14 10 months later

    if that was the case, everyone would buy nitrous. for someone that wants more out of their motor without having to go in and put a cam and deal with idle and driveability issues, it's a way to go. and it's something most everyone can do themselves.

    ill agree with above.

    personally, i think a person should get a cam.
    i always said ill never go internal, well i did.
    its better to save up the money and get cammed.
    my 1.85 rocker kit, install and dyno pulls were almost 800 total.

    speedinc. cam kit plus tuning and install special was 1300
    for 500 more you can make alot more power.

    will never disagree that you can get more power for the dollar by going cam compared to rockers. it'll be just one of those things where people will want more power with stock idle characteristics is all. boths ways are fine.
