When hardly anybody makes stuff for the Starion anymore (or the 4G63 SOHC engine) and you're one of the few suppliers who do then you can charge what ever you want. Also lower volumes of items sold naturally mean higher prices to cover tooling and holding costs.

If you want low item costs with high availability of aftermarket parts then you need to swap chassis' and go the "Nissan" way.

Also if my memory serves me correct Stage 1 and Stage 2 aren't that much of an improvement, however someone more mechanically knowledgeable should advise on this one.

I've heard some SOHC guys use Camtech cams:

Thanks for the replies.

I used the search function and cam across of a lot of stage 4 cams which have been used.
Where can these be found?

camtech states a lot of improvemend in midrange..
i think it would be goo to have a cam that enhances the top end, as the stock one is useles there..

look up the sohc builds in the projects forum.... and search threads on the subject in this forum.
Many have very good results with camtech from my observations. Check the 1/4 mile database also
Make sure your intake manifold, exhaust mani or turbo is not choking pre-6000 rpm
Turbo sohc motors have enough midrange torque can get the job done, without high rpms

For years, on us starquestclub the quickest street 2.6 starion ran a stock cam(6300 rpm redline). 10.6 sec 1/4 mile

Camtech stage 2 are good to over 6500rpm and make good power up there. They are the biggest you can get from a regrind. Tighe cams in Brisbane may be able to make billets for Starion sohc engines, they make their own billets for other engines. I haven't looked at their grind range for ages though.
