Need advice on Cams! I am about to buy some!

Hello,


My car 99 ZX2, 7psi
Mods,
T25sr20det turbo
Fidaza lightweight flywheel
MSD DIS2
Ported TB
Ported intake manny
F/C UDP kit
Spec 2 clutch
2.5" exhaust
Weight reduction
(soon to be P&P Head)
Now time to buy cams, since I have to take them out to get the head off!

This is what I have now:
High Rev intake cam/Good idle--------- 227*@.50/.400

This is what I need:

You suggestion on what exhaust cam to buy with Turbo, here are my options :

Sell the intake cam, and buy>
High Torque intake cam-------216*@.50/.398
OR
Keep the cam and buy eather>>

High torque exhaust cam------216*@.50/.398
OR
High Rev exhaust cam---------------227*@.50/.400

in my observations both High Revs have the Same Specs although the high rev exhuast cam give me a Rough idle, which I am NOT worried about!!!!


Someone told me That the cam I have now is WAAAYYYY TOO big FOR Turbo.

I need a very KNOWLAGED opinion!

Keep in mind thses cams or For BOOST! NOT N/A so please dont get anything confused!

Thank you once again!
I personally asume I want to buy the High Rev Exhaust cam to match the High Rev intake cam that I have so both will be 227*@.50/.400
But That's why im posting here, Cuz I REALLY Don't know whats best for me!
