Well since I realy am not able to get a RS01 or older without going second hand, so going with the newer one. But hey its still a RS.

But my thought is what do people think of the COBB Power Package Stage 2 kit. Do you think that it is worth $1775.00.
Also what do you all think of COBB's cam's. Again are they worth it.

IMO, i think it is well worth it, if you want to stay NA. If you're looking for more power i'd say go for stage 3!!!! :drool: :happynow:

the cams are as far as i know, are the best cams that's avaiable for the EJ25.

those are great packages! i'm gonna get the closed deck ej25 block! :drool: hahaha

Wll for a while i plan to stay n/a, but in a few years a turbo is a possability (when this is not my daily driver)
so I well do the cyclinders t that point. Because if I do them now, Imay have to do them again later ....
But from what I can tell the stage 2 and the cam's are goign to brak 200hp.
Then its time to go find some RICE. here rice rive rice
come on want to race:boxer:
j/k
only on a track

The Cobb s/t cams are great,they will give you the top end you never knew you had and will also go great with a turbo down the road.If i had it to do all over again id go the Cobb stage3, right from the start rather then piecing it together like ive done,but $ constraints prevailed.IMHO Cobb probably has the best products out there fr the N/A motor.Pricey yes,but worth it.

If your staying NA. Cams will be the biggest way to manipulate power. They pretty much are the lungs of your motor. Some draw backs to aggresive cams are lose a tad bit of low end power and your idle will be a little higher and sloppier. Depending on what duration and overlap Trey is putting on his cams. If do you do go with a serious cam you will need to be careful of floating your valves too. If you call Trey tell him were you want to be and your budget he will not do you wrong.

be a little carefull about which cams you get, too.

from what I've heard, the street "spicy" cams will cause your engine to stall under 800 RPM...and since our engine's idle ~650-700 RPM's, that could be very annoying...

I've got the spicy cams, and no problems. The idle is a little rough, but you hardly notice it after a few days. I idles happily at the normal 650 (by my inductive tach)

If you want to go with the stage 2 kit and save a few bucks, don't buy the high flow cat. You can get a 2.25" cat, two o2 sensor bungs, some SS pipe and have it all bent and welded up nice at you local muffler shop for 150 or so.

Stage Two

I am running the Cobb Stage 2 kit rightn now except for the high flow cat and I think it's great -- great performance and great sound -- it's well worth it I'm am with rudy though I wish I had the funds from the begining to go with the stage 3 but as of now I'm just peicing it together..
