No they are ready for sale. Read my post for details. Good for about 6 whp over S4's but best with adjustable timing gears and tighter lobe centers.chris13bsr20 said:Read Mike's thread in this forum on the HS gen 6 and the S5 cams. I wouldnt call JWT since they aren't ready for sale yet.
I just talked to them yesterday and they said they would be ready in a few weeks. Who told you they were for sale already? I'm stuck between VE or DE with S5's...............choaderboy2 said:No they are ready for sale. Read my post for details.

No, that's like saying C3 cams make C1 cams obselete. I think what everyone is missing here is that while the S5s will add lots of top end power, they will decrease the low end power significantly. There are already alot of people saying S4s make the car too slow at low RPM, S5s will make this even worse.
My sentiments as well. If I can get a used set for $350 I'd be a happy camper and I wouldn't have to worry about trying to save for the Tomei 256 cams.2xSE-R said:I hope so, I'm hoping to pick up a cheap set of used S3's or 4's when the S5's become available.
I think it would be safe to say the S3HLs make S3s obselete and S4HLs make S4s obselete. The S5 is somewhat of an extreme cam for those who can tolerate a crappy idle and loss of low end. That does not make the S3 and less suitable for small turbos and people who want a good idle and retain low end power, it simply gives another option for people wanting a wild cam and do not want to buy springs and retainersDespite what someone else said, I believe so, yes. Just as the S1 and S2 cams are obsolete when the S3's arrived, then the S4's came which started to become more popular and now the S5's - except for the fact that you need the cam gears which might drive more new comers towards the S4's.
