Will cams help low/mid tq for JRSC/BBK?

Since the JRSC/BBK doesn't make much in the way of low end tq, I am wondering if a set of low to mid range cams would help the little blower.
I'm not expecting gobs of turbo tq, just a credible increase. Thoughts?

No cam made will make more low to mid HP/TQ then the stock cams , as you go up in Duration on cams it moves up the power/RPM band

At what point would they start making power? Crower says 0-6500 for stage 1.
1500rpm, 2000, what? Thank you for the information.

on that note i already had cams when i supercharged my zx3 and it made a little more tq then i expected. 170 tq and 190hp. that may have been a result of the cam gear adjustments as well though.
but if you dont already have them i dont know that they are worth the effort. you would be better off porting the blower as far as cost per hp basis

ZX3Tuning made some cams specifically for roots style blowers....they were pricey though.


I almost picked up a set when i had my PWSC setup on my other ZX3.
