Most stage 2 cams like Comp Cams, HiTech, CMS, Crower ect. are the biggest you can go. Remember that the cams will bring the power up into the rpms higher so you will need better gears to compensate for the low end loss.

Ideally you will want 3.73s, then for the cams (remember your motor has 2 of them), you will ideally want adjustable cam gears so you can degree them, and you will also want to replace the valve springs.

You'll probably need a dyno tune, as well, for any cams that have a healthy sounding idle, anyway.

Also what everyone else said. A nice stage 2 cam will probably suffice. But "stages" are different for every company so your mileage may vary

I have every bolt on you can get on my 99 Gt. I went with 3.73 gears on a 5 speed trans and love it. Crower Stage 2 cams were added and then tuned. It put down 295 RWHP and 305 foot pounds of torque. I'm happy with the way it runs.

Cushman stage 2 NA cams.

Will require a dyno tune
TFS adjustable crank gears
Degree service
New valve springs

And there is a ton you can do to the auto. J-mod it with a good aftermarket converter and it will be faster than it would be at the 1/4 track if it had a stick.

Because Cushman has proven over and over again to get the best results.

Also, I missed the part about the car being bone stock. Cams are going to suck on a bone stock car. Needs bolt ons and supporting mods. Cams should be the last thing.

I was just looking at them. Even the stage 1 seem kind of aggressive. I have to leave the stock gears in for my class, or 3.55's. I guess that I need to do more comparisons of all the specs...
