I have a stage 2 in my 450, awesome power gain. You will need to rejet for sure. Check your valve clearance and get the timing spot on

Who are you gonna believe, the people who think a louder exhaust makes you faster or the people who have spent tons of money and hours researching and designing and then testing on a dyno machine, a product to increase power???

Yes you can feel a difference on the low end but most people don't take high speed turns so they are never feeling the top end pull. I do desert racing where it is common to take a turn in the upper 4th gear range, coming out of those turns my quad likes to stand up.

I have the stage 2 and I like it. it's not a bottom end cam it's mid to high r's. I called hot cam's before I got mine and talked to tech. Asked them how much bottom end I was going to lose. The guy told me @4% but if I was increasing bore or comp. I wouldn't notice. Well long story short he wasn't full of it, for the money its a good cam.
