Their graph seems to indicate a pretty minimal change in output.

High Dollar for not much power, and you don't know about the reliability of those cams. I would want hard parts that can go 100's of thousands of miles, lose a cam and don't catch it and you could lose a engine. Not worth it for me, you know the old saying ROI.

I compared the specs that they offered on their site with the BC stage 2 cams and found that the Ballade/CCW were a bit milder. I'd get in touch with Urge and look into the Bumpstix camshafts.

I might have a set of BC stage 2 cams with only 500 miles on them for sale soon, just need some AP2 cams in return plus some cash.

I would be weary of the BC2 cams also. See this thread with those cams causing accelerated wear.

Go with some reputable higher end cams and someone that really knows what they're doing when they install them. Don't cheap out. Pay now, or pay later - it'll be more expensive later, in addition to the cost of cheaping out initially.

I always like to say "if you can't afford to spend the money to mod it correctly the first time, then you can't afford to fix it later..."

I have had zero issues with BC cams (I have 500 miles on them now) but my other s2000 had 15K miles and my oil analysis was no different than with OEM cams.

I really love my ddtech stage2s. Looked into the bc2 as well during my research phase and found too many bad reviews. Never tried them myself I will say.
