Yeah, even with my stock cams and stage 1, it's got much more punch down low and short shifting gets the most out of it, with the intake, exhaust and tune I have in it. Given the choice I would absolutely make the same choice as you for a torque cam as opposed to something you have to milk to get the most out of. It's all about the daily ride as opposed to something that you can race. I've been contemplating cams, but am hesitant to tear into the cam chest, and I insist on doing the work myself. I'm pretty happy the way it is now. Your FB is a bit sportier than my geezer glide.As you know Hark the Stage 2 can include either a torque or a power cam. I chose the torque because I don't ride at the speed or the rpm's where the power cam begins to deliver its advantages. So you may be on to something, with a power cam it could very well give an X a run for its money. Mine peaks well before that I think.
