Default RSI & cams

Is RSI still in business? Tried calling them, number out of order. All I want is a stage 3 cam... May just have to go IPD. Side note, does anyone care to share how much power they make w/ the IPD cam?

They have been out of business for a year or two now.

The had a fire sale on the last of the new cams at the end of last year, so I think they're all gone. I snagged another stage 3 for like $160 shipped while I had the chance.

I paid $300 for rsi stage 3. A guy on ebay was asking $500 for one. Kenny Made 330whp with ipdturbo cam recently. 8v with GT3076. There are a couple cam threads around in the last 2 weeks. Enem has a few good options.

Thanks for the info guys! that was quick!, I'm really just looking to get to the 300 mark, so if an IPD cam will carry me there, so be it. I will look into the ENEM cams, esp if anyone has a lightly used one or a link

Been at around 275whp for several years on my IPD cam, 18psi, and mostly bolt on's, even a stock head.

Why not Enem, KGtriming or KLracing?

I do not believe the stage 3 is necessary for such a "low" hp target. It should be able to go further than that. a VX cam or IPD and an adjustable camgear will get you 300 i believe.

I am running a VX cam, though i am looking for something way more aggressive than that. I aim for 400whp. Currently running quite a lot of boost (23 psi), on that ****ty old 530 head. Working on a 531 that needs bigger exh. valves and porting. Also have 16v head ready

Personally, I think I'll be looking at the KG-2T Cam over the IPD turbo cam for my +T
