The valve train on the 79-83 non turbos and turbos are the same according to the Z store. I was told that this cam was supposed to help with better gas milage and emissions. I don't know if this is true or not though. The cam is from Comp. Cams. If u want to know the specs i can give them to u. I have all the sheets with the specs of the cam on them. I am in Arlington so there would be a shipping charge but it shouldn't be much. Let me know what u decide.

If so then I would think it would take away from power
I would like to stick with the stock one but some where I saw a thing for a 10% hP gain hmm now that would be good

do yourself a favor!!

Replace your springs, lashpads, replace or resurface your rocker arms too. I didnt do this and trashed my cam after 600 miles! Call Motorsport and they will point you in the right direction for a turbo cam.
