    stage 2 pkg or vortec?

    What is the best bang for the buck on a 6.1L? the stage 2 heads and cam package or a vortech supercharger? which 1 is more dependable? which one provides the most hp and torque? which one would be better suited for a street car(driveablilty)? Oh and which is cheaper?

    The stage 2 kit is the way to go. Then you never haveto worry about part throttle boost. Plus I know two hhp cars with the package you mentioned running 11.15 and 11.11 it's a proven set up

    For a street car and daily driver I would do the heads and cam. It is also less than expensive and more bang for the buck than supercharger.

    so with the stage 2 cam , is it required that you change the heads at the same time or is that something that can be done a little later? I would like to get the ball rolling now but dont have all the funding to do so but i could do the cam now.

    Yes, you will need upgraded springs/retainers for the stage 2 cam so you might as well get the heads ported if you are going to all that effort.

    Plus you're only 30 or so minutes away from our shop here in Newark, DE. You couldn't be in a better location to run either, and we're at the local tracks at least once a month with the HEMI's so you can go throw down, lol.
