You might PTV clearance issues. Might need head work first

You MIGHT have PTV issues with stage 2 Comps, you WILL with Stage 3. OP those will be best combined with headwork but to get rid of the PTV clearance issues you need new pistons.

Since you will need new pistons it will be best do just do it right and get Manley forged H beams with the best pistons (figure out the size of the dish you will need depending on what you will want your compression to be)

He should be okay on PTV on stage twos, he will need better springs for sure.

Stage threes you would need a low profile flat top and total head work.

Stage 3 cams are really meant for built cars.


Tho I do have a friend with a 99 ws6 with a cam that has a lift just over .600 and all he had to do was change springs.

But our cars are different and better anyways

Cliff's notes:

Stage 1 - install, tune recommended, go.

Stage 2 - install, new valve springs required, tune required, 3.73s or taller gear highly recommended

Stage 3 - notched pistons required, will not achieve anything near their full potential without ported heads, new valve springs required, tune required, all sorts of other supporting shiznits recommended.

With every set of cams you will need to either degree them yourself or pay for a degree service which is $150 and then another $50 for the adjustable TFS crank gear so add that $200 on top of whatever you are doing. Going rate for a dyno tune is $600 give or take. And no, before you ask, Bama does not tune for cams.

Also, don't bother with the Comp stuff on AM, go with Cushman cams. Cushrman won't make the peak numbers like some others but the power curve will be pretty optimal.
