will i need the kit sprocket to use the 08 kit cam? or can i use the stock 04 sprocket?

the 08 race manual says " In case of using kit camshaft (IN:49118-0134, EX:49118-0045), be sure to use kit
camshaft sprocket (IN/EX:12046-0034) and kit tappet (12032-0002) as a set"


thoughts?!?!

the gen1 and gen3 are no wheres near the same cam but the gen3 cam will give a little boost. the cam you really want is the 04-07 intake cam. part # 49118-0034. you can use the stock sprocket but if you do use the kit sprockets make sure you get the bolts that go with them.
Ronayers has them new for $138.00 part #49118-0134, 08 race cam.

gen 3 race intake in my gen 2 made killer top end power paired with a thin headgasket and some exhaust porting. Definately worth the $130 price tag all day. Dont forget your race valve springs tho!

yeah i think ill be doing the .045 gasket at the same time.

if you had the choice . which intake cam would you run in the Gen1?
got these specs from another thread:

08 race intake 49118-0134 234 dur .382" lift
04/05/06 race intake 49118-0034 248 dur .382" lift

seems like the 04 race cam with the longer duration would be best??
but i'm guessing i cant really go wrong with either one

You did some exhaust porting. What if you didn't?
Maybe the results would not be the same.

Just pointing out the differences so ppl do not make wrong assumptions :thumbsup:

I remember a thread where somebody tried 3gen cams on a gen2 with various degrees, very informative.

i thought the gen 3 was 386 lift. and yeah the gen1 race cam is better but good luck finding one. And without the exhaust porting youd probably have more low end and not as much up top.

Thats why i didnt touch my exhaust, my low end is awesome, critical for dragracers.
