I have duels, K&N, PC3 and 15T.

I can't make up my mind, Hot Cams Stage 2 or Web Stage 1.
Both of them are billets and drop in cams.

I need more top end power and over rev.
Is there some dynos to prove the facts?

Consider the cost first, from my experience and research the web stage 1 isn't much better then stock jmo. If you have to go web go stage 2 or better and get those springs while your there, otherwise the hotcams stage 2 is a great option and a good performer. There is a topic started here with the same type of comparison so do a search for it.

I don't know whichone is better, but if i have to go with one of the two,i'll choose stge 2 hotcams because i'll have more top end power with the same mods as stage 1(without springs)

Stage 2: single-cam motor. Excellent top-end and great over rev. Uses stock auto-decompression mechanism. Uses stock valve springs and rockers.

That is what Hot Cams claims.

If I had to buy again it would be Hotcam stage 2 instead of web stage one. Some folks pushed me to get web even though there were no numbers (besides what hotcam claimed) on these cams yet. I listen to them :mad:

BTW .. web stage 1 is better than a factory cam! Who told you otherwise. Are you kidding? The web 1 will give a little more power on top end all out. Hot cams 2 much better mid and up close to top.

Im not 100 % sure on this but I believe you loose more low end with this hot cam 2 and not loose as much with the web stage 1. For overall power though hotcam has it.

No I'm dead serious, in my testing the stock cam was just as good as the web cam st1, thats why I said my opinion, no need to flame or become sarcastic, just explaining what I have encountered.

Well hopefully if I get my cams in next week I can take it to the shop and get the 11:1 and HC Stage 2 put it and get it on the dyno.

Thanks for the info, I will get the cam and do a full custom map. I will post the results. Let’s try the Hot Cams Stage 2.

If I don’t like it I'll sell it. I do agree that there are many better and stronger cams available. But this is just for a simple drop in mod.

Flaming? And I missed also where I was being sarcastic. I just asked who told you different. And "are you kidding me" is a general statement when you think someone is saying something that is hard to believe. I believe most builders think it is better. So thats why Im trying to figure out how you came to that conclusion.
