I've read quite a few good things on just tuning the stock cams for a FI application. I haven't read any really good reviews of FI cams for the Focus.

I did a little searching to refersh my memory. Here are two pretty good links.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...threadid=17558
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...threadid=15810

The first one has a couple of people talking about FI and cams. The second thread is Turbo Tom himself saying stick with the stock cams for a Turbo application. Hope this helps.

Gabe it also depends on what kind of driving ur going to do and if ur going fi or staying na. Some cams would only be for race to and give u the worste gas mileage ever.

P.S. dont get cams its getting scary that ur keeping up with my svt. lol

The more aggressive cams aren't really purposed well for FI applications.
