Default which set of cams to go with?

There is a for sale thread with Toda and Skunk2 cams. I am interested in buying one of these set ups. Which would be the best. What kind of EMS would I need? Can I use my eManage? Or are cams a total waste for the s2k. Point me in the right direction please.

So far, it seems like cams are a waste on the s2000. No one has shown power gains on on cams (at least the brian crower ones). Theres some people here who have the skunk2 cams, i'm not sure who but hopefully they give their input on them. Not sure whos running the Toda cams. Theres also the highly anticipated hytech cams.

The HyTech cams work. I can't reccomend another setup.

Just asking because there is a claim that with a Toda cam set-up he put 245whp out. I just don't want to waste $1000.

I honestly gave up on this because I'm tired of arguing about it. Toda cams do make power if you have them installed and adjusted correctly. Also, you need a tune to take advantage of them. Intake, Exhaust, Toda cams, cam gears, valve springs, and a tune should get you 230whp. Whether they're worth the price difference over Skunk2, I can't say because I've never driven a car with Skunk2 cams. Actually, I haven't really seen a dyno either. I would get the Hytech cams if you have the cash, they will make more power than Toda or Skunk2.

p.s. These cars sound amazing with cams.
