for the most part, aftermarket cams have shown virtually no gain on FI applications. tom at focus power has made some references to some new turbo cams coming out soon that seem to be showing some promise, but I don't think they're out yet.

I'm curious too... I have STII Ford Racing cams and need to know if I should sell them and throw my stockers back in... SC or Turbo, just curious... I've read that STIII Ford Racing are extremely aggressive and are good for SC, so I'm also confused?!?
