Even a stage 1 type of cams make a difference.

Not many companies I've found make them only cosworth and Crower unless I'm missing something. But I think I'll be able to hit my mark without cams.

You can= Its called turbo!!!!!! Just add a 23 head & a set of crane cams= 224-0010's or 0012's will do ya. Even the 0010's make a big difference.

Thats the main reason why I didn't add a turbo yrs ago. I didn't want to go thru the motor.

The turbo didnt kill his engine !

You dont need cams with a turbo , I havent seen any that helped with boost , I would do valve springs tho

Well it came down to it and none of the four places that said they had the weapon r in stock had it. I'm forced to complete my build with the stock intake carillo pro super a beam rods fs werks forged 9:1pistons. If anyone has one for sale let me know. Otherwise in waiting for topspeeds intake to be released I do not want the cos or knockoff.
