Re: Best cams for 16V Turbo? (Phobia16V)

i am sure he will chime in, but killa is using dual exhaust cams. i would think either these or a euro cam would be the most extreme cams for turbo. as for the internal cam gears, would your (dave) plans be so great that it would come down to adjusting cam gears to dial out overlap? IMO they arent realistic for most people, even at your level.
<edit> actually i take it back, who is to say what your amount of time/dedication per amount of power ratio is. I feel my time could be better spent elsewhere which would have a larger impact on the power output.

well for your application, i would go with a euro intake cam. i mean its factory (well almost). stealth racing in the UK has put their kit using stock KR cams, four extra injectors, K-star (on the euro inj), a garrett T25, and at .65 bar (9.5psi) it makes 200hp(not sure if its at the crank or the wheels).
<edit> oh yeah, on the stock 1.8L KR/PL block
