I personally would not buy a turbo cam for your vehicle. If you look at the specs for turbo cams you will notice that it has a relatively small lift . This is because the turbo takes care of alot of the induction by forcing air in . You could polish & port match the head and manifolds.
Save the $400 on cam and use this to upgrade the turbo, new intercooler, larger fuel pump . Many guys run 350-400 hp with stock cam .

Re: Question for all you Turbo people out there...

The turbo cam is not that bad, the only thing is that it peaks around 4800 rpm. For those of you wishing to make more power, 425+, you should look into getting a bigger cam. I purchased a performance turbo cam from Top-end that peaks at over 8200 RPM, this is not to say that you will ever take your car to those rpm levels, but there is a substantial gain in lift and duration over stock. I have not yet run the cam, the engine will be complete in 2 weeks and I can give more insight at that time. Do not run a cam that is not designed for a turbo car, you will be sorry.
