    vt stage 2 cams here on my daily driver. Have had them in for a year and a half as a daily driver. No problems besides stalling once in a blue moon but thats cause i am untuned. Tuned you will have no problems

    mild cams won't hurt your drivability at all. They might hurt your gas milage but that will mostly be because you are getting on it much more often.

    not the best yet.. but yeah it is sweet... just got it today and it scared the bejesus out of me the first time I opened it up.

    back on topic though. you'll drop a couple MPG's.. but it is worth it. kinda like dont fear the gear.. dont fear the cam either :D

    My mileage dropped some after my Comp 262's because I was running rich but after the tune it is nearly where I was stock. I'm at 312 miles on a tank as it sits under the carport all highway miles.

    No driveabilty issues at all. I drive 140 mile RT to work.

    Yea...the Probe is forelorn looking in the front drive. Too hot to fool with the thing right now and no place to work on it.

    BTW...I gave you a 300 foot rev on my way home tonight. It was dark and I couldn't really see where your house was.:D

    VT Stage 2's in my DD with every other bolt on imaginable. Gas mileage isn't too bad on the interstate, but if i get on it you can tell its just guzzling down some gas. Other than that everything is perfect. I have to turn it on and wait a few minutes for it to warm up when i start it.. no big deal, if i dont want it just doesnt wanna go lol
