I'm planning on modding the car. I simply love this car and I want to invest more money in it.
I was looking into cams since they gain more power than rockers. But I'm conflicted by two competitors, ZZP and INTENSE. Of course I prefer INTENSE but while reading their website

That'* an additional 500 dollars right there plus more for installation

The GT1 cam was designed for naturally aspirated applications where emissions and street-ability are important. It will not set SES lights. The GT cam uses steep ramp rates and tight base lobes to keep the computer and the sniffer happy while still providing great performance. This cam does not set the P0300 code and can be installed on a stock 3800 all the way to radical. It was designed for the NA L36 but will also work well with nitrous or intercooled boost. It is the only major L36 grind on the market that does not need a converter or gear changes to see gains
Look for gains of 20-30 HP depending on your car'* current configuration with a drop of 1/2 sec in the 1/4 mile.
I'm more tempted by ZZP since they list the avg hp gain and say that you do not need a TC.
But I want to run a INTENSE PCM. Please advise on which cam to use and which one is the best and I plan on having INTENSE install it.
Before any of you guys get ready to post and say "Use the Search" I've already did that and did not find anything that helped me.
