Stage 1 ..just in my opinion only.. is not worth the money. Power gains aren't that impressive and lope is generally tame.

My cam probably a "stage 2" as far as LS3 cams go because I did a conversion. However, it is about the same size as the VVT3 which is one of the largest cams you can get without doing a conversion. I felt the conversion would be much more friendly for a super/turbocharger..

I did the Vmax ported throttle body, torque converter, transmission cooler, trunnion kit upgrade, LS3 conversion and cam for $4700 (included labor/dyno).

I went from 370ish to 439rwhp with the cam. So it was about 70rwhp with the larger stage 2.
"Stages" are just packages from different shops. A stage number doesn''t mean diddly. SPECS are what you need to learn and understand.

Assigning a "stage" number to components in a package tend to push you into buying more than you may really want.

or get a shop to do it for ~ $2800 w/ tune.
$2195 plus sales tax.
