3 valve guides
4 valves
5 anything else "neede" to be upgraded

Most stage 1 cams are designed to work with factory valvetrain... If you want to go stage 2 then you'll need springs and such...
Yup... almost everyone and their moms run stage 1 cams with stock valve train. Along with tsx cams and such. The difference is enough to make a difference but not enough to stress the risk of running valve float. Unless you like to mis-shift on purpose you should be ok. You'll want to upgrade when you get to stage 2 since the lift and duration will be alot more different than stock as to compared with the stage 1 vs. stock.
