He's saying to let the turbo cram the air in. They do have a turbo spec cam.

SYZ then don't bother wasting your money.

RPMisChris well I plan on going turbo!

SYZ I noticed a very slight difference when I did the stage 1's on my NA 2.0. Definitely not worth it unless you are installing yourself. You will need a tune to maximize benefits.

Walter Marcy did a lot of testing with the Crane cams... you will need to adjust them to also achieve the best curve.

I would suggest stage 2 cams if you plan to stay NA

The 224-0010 cams are more then enough for your 20. You'll notice a difference. I'd say if your going to add the 0012 cams, Then I'd add a 23 head. You'd need to add valve springs for sure & you'll need in & out stuff= sri/cai & a header to take advantage of those cams. I really thought of adding those cams, Then figured this is my DD car. I've had plenty of cammed up V/8's= a couple of 5.0's & a few 301's & 327's & others. I use to shop duration= Look at 230/240 degrees at .050 to start w/ for a DD.

I have these cams, & they work great for me= A great set of DD cams. Easy to install. Even thou I forgot 'bout the tensioner= I had to pull off the front cover= a couple more hrs. I had no issues w/ the clearence, you shouldn't being the base circle is the same. I have a 23 & installing these cams in a 20 I believe your going to have & notice the same gains as I have. The stock cams are pretty wimpy. I hope this helps you.

PowerFocer Speaking purely out of my here, but from what I've heard; with full bolt-ons and tune you should get 10-15whp from the cams (again, so I've heard) which will definitely be noticeable. Or you could spend a little more and swap in a D23. Depending on your mechanical skills and what not and receive more hp/tq and have more power options later on.
