I know its not Nissan, but a bunch of guys in the DSM/4g63 crowd have had good luck with the Deltas. A buddy of mine had the Hks knockoff Delta 272s and had no issues with them. I would assume their products for the Nissan platform would be just as good.

delta cam was going to do some work for me on a set of subaru cams I had. Nice people that were great to talk to on the phone.

Seems the record for stock cams is 574hp and 133mph in the 1/4 (doesnt specify which duration used though) , looks like aftermarket cams are unnecessary.

Peak power doesn't tell the whole story though. Different cams move the power-band around, hopefully into a more useable range. Also, while I'm sure somebody DID make 574 on stock sticks, what would have happened if they tossed in an aftermarket set?

If its a street car, Im sure stock cams are just fine, since there is more to a "fun car" than a simple horsepower number. To this effect, however, stock cams don't give you that wub-wub-wub... and if we're completely honest, isn't that 79.3% of the reason anybody wants cams anyway?

stock cams will give you that "wub-wub-wub" you just gotta set them wrong lol.

All aftermarket cams move v.e. to the right, which for the low reving ka doesnt seem like a great idea, I think if cams are wanted 264's would be good enough for 99% people unless going for drag racing only.

^^ Touche sir.

I do agree that on a modest street driven car, most cams end up moving the powerband too high to be of too much use.
