CDSilver5DoorSVT has Ray's cams in his wifs car, and it made close to 270whp with the PW big boost kit. I have rode in that car and it runs good with them in it, and they seem to really like them.

Dont know but i doubt a zetec with the PW and big boost kit will make that much with out them. And the got a very good TQ out of them and If i rember correctly it was was a pretty flat line.

I love all the "all that power has to be coming from the FI Cams um , well , I think it is anyway "
When you tune out the overlap you also give up something some where else most cases good low end and or mid range

Why add boost if your going to blow it out the Exh side with out using it

It comes down to this , If your willing or wanting to spend 350.00 + on FI cams for 4 to 10HP then buy them , Me I am just going to add 1 more psi of boost and make the same power and put the 350.00+ in my pocket

Throwing a ton of money into a poor engine/FI combination only makes a bad combination worse , Find a Co that has a good track record with making power with the Focus and stick with them you will find this to make the most power for the least amount of money

The only answer to the cam questions is have about 20 cams there and about 3 to $5000.00 for dyno cost and see what one makes the best power for YOUR COMBINATION because what some one else does(Compression , Turbo size , SC pulley , SC , Head work ) WILL NOT be the same

Even two Foci the same may not respond the same to the same cams
