I am a S4 fan. I prefer the power on the high side of the powerband.
Amen Brotha! Keep Preaching!
I bet the new S5 cams give you another 5 HP on the top side of the powerband.

I've had both S3's and S4's on NA SR20's with similar mods. My choice is............................................ drum roll please.....................................................

the S3's.

Why? I don't think the power loss down low and even mid range was worth it for the S4's. The S3's let the car pull harder throughout more of the powerband.

If you're looking for TOP dyno #'s, then you want the S4's (or most recently S5's) but if you want the best driveability get the S3's.

Is it just me or should he consider a bigger exhaust before springing for cams...or at least a header?

To me that says "daily driver" and you very seldom redline. I would say that the JWT S3 cams would be best for you. ;) But I would also says take care of all the bolt-ons first(CAI, exhaust, header). :D

ok, i got the intake already (short ram), i guess the headers would be the next thing to do then....hotshot, hks, nismo, etc...which one????

if i were you i would do a search for some info, there is a lot of great info on here that you can find. then i would shop around for the price you would be willing to spend and you could even check in the classified section and group buy section of this forum.

i picked the s4's myself and they are going in very soon... this car will also be daily driven. s3's might be good and all but i kind of like a punch of power up top. just my 2 cents...
