So, I know that the 2nd Gen cams are better than the 1st Gen cams when you do the cam swap, but how much better are they?

How much HP difference is there between them?

If I can get 1st gen cams for $100, but I have to pay $200 for 2nd gen cams, is there any REAL reason to pay the extra?

Wacky saw a HUGE increase when he did his cams.  I think the 2nd gen is really the only way to go.  They changed the profiles and that's what makes it work.  He posted his before and after dyno graph in this thread: http://forum.svrider.com/index.php?topic=46460.msg505983#msg505983
Yeah, but Wacky went from Stock Exhaust cams to 2nd Gen Intake cams.
Im speaking about the difference between 1st gen intake & 2nd gen Intake.

Why is 2nd gen the only way to go?

The lift is different.  The first gen intakes have 1.400" of lift and the 03 intake have 1.425" of lift.  How much does this equate to power????  I'm not sure.  I have never seen a dyno of just intake cam'd motor.  I did see one of a full sencond gen intake cam'd motor.  It was a screamer.

I'm not sure why the second gen intakes are more money now.  They were $100 a piece.  Did you check Ron Ayers?  Or CCoD?

But for the $200 I spent to get the 9 hp gain... I'm happy as a clam.  Plus, I'll get more up top when I rejet correctly....  he he...

BTW - I am running 200 Intake for my exhaust cams and 03 intakes for my intakes.  If I ran all 03 intakes.... yikes... 

Well, I've found some 1st gen intake cams for $75 + shipping, so Im just wondering if it would be worth the extra to buy 2nd gen is all. Because I dont think finding some 2nd gen cams for $75 - $100 is too likely considering their popularity.
