TSX cams need help please

Im interested in purchasing a set of 2006-2008 tsx intake and exhaust cams. Im new to cams, so any help would be appreciated.

Current Modifications:
-2008 Civic Si Sedan
-stock k20 engine
-Skunk2 header
-Fullrace 3" exhaust
-boomba motor mounts

my questions are:

-are tsx cams drop and go? no other engine mods needed? (aside from flashpro of course)
-how much do these cost brand new?
-whats a reputable place/website to you buy these from?
-how much do they cost to install?
-if you have a similar setup as mine, what performance gains did you make? feel free to share any dyno results
-how will these perform with a stage 2 supercharger?
-how will these perform with a skunk2 intake manifold and throttle body?
-how do these cams effect fuel economy?

thanks for your help. :dance:

TSX cams is a good start for a DD ride. Leaves it open for potential if you stay mild NA or go boost. You should outline your future plans now because going thru a few cams or valvetrains to support your desires will be costly.
kenny311 has a churchs dyno graph with rrc+j35 w/ tsx cams. search it. has a good description on the thread of his work.
do you need to enlarge your intake manifold and throttle body to see any gains with these or any cams. I have basic bolt ons but don't know if the RRC/J35 is worth the money right now
Ifs helps but its not necessary. People have ran rbc and stock TB while getting 240ish whp

I noticed that "stage one" more or less give better overall "perk" in gains than Max power output. If that makes sense.
