Just curious about the performance this cam produces. I got a set of JDM stock cams so before I bother to install them, i want to know if they'll be worth the while....so start writing!

I have a 98 SE-R and I have a 91 intake cam. My initial impressions of the cam are that it smooths out the powerband and top end is great. It pulls strong all the way to redline. If I had a JWT ECT, I might get a little more out of it, but the 200SX SE-R are cursed with the lower redline and speed governor. My car definitely has more power due to this cam. Plus, it doesn't affect emmissions or idle AT ALL!

If you have the cam, put in it. It doesn't hurt! It's a great bang for the buck kind of mod that you will enjoy until you get some JWT/JUN cams!

I got a 91 cam put in a few weeks ago. You don't notice a difference until around 4-5k rpm, then it you can feel it pull more than the stock cam did to redline. My idle has a slight lope to it now. I like it! If i had an exhaust, it would sound even better :)

After installing the Intake cam (exhaust shouldn't make a difference) I noticed a nice little increase around 4 grand and up...car pulls a little harder. Not a bad mod for the price..if you have it I definetley recommend you install.

With the JWT ECU, I can definitely notice a difference in the higher RPMS! I love taking her up to 7500 and hearing that engine growl and pull it up in the 120's!! It is definitely an awesome low budget upgrade! :D

yeah i had te 91 intake cam installed on mine and after 4K it pulls alot harder. I couldnt imagine spending 600+ bux on "performance cams" when this cam for 100 bux gets the job done

Are the cams from a 91 NX2000 the same as the 91 Cams You guys are talking of? Reason im asking is that im in Canada, and 91 SERs arent avalable here.

You are comparing a stock cam to performance cams though..you think you felt a good kick from a stock cam?..feel what you can get outta those $500.00 dollar cams before you say they are plenty...you will be surprised. I cant wait to get some S3's....

yes, I've driven a car with the S3 cams as well as the ECU, and a few other parts that i dont have on my car (pulleys, cai) and it was okay.. I actually dynoed higher than the car with S3's by 4 more hp and more torque. So, i'm feeling pretty good about my 100$ "stock" cam. It's all about the tuning, and I feel that Throttle Position Motorsports really turned my car into a beast.
