well the thing with the svt cams is they were designed with the header, and dual stage intake mani, in mind. i wouldnt know what you would need to make it work.

i know the svt head has like bigger valves, better springs, and alot of other stuff i cant remember. so it would pretty much be a full out head build for you, which would seem not efficient.. since you're just asking about cams.

There are no US SVT cams in production , there is some at CAT cams and a few other Euro places for the ST170 same as the US SVT basicly

There costly and the return isnt that great along with driveability issues because the SVT cams are already very large thats why the VCT is used

check out the stickied threads here and find what you like for performance modifications but yes, A great place to start is a tune from Tom, and as you build, he'll update it for you as long as you stay NA

A tune might not help him depending on what he wants to do....

And he's asking about cams, not a TUNE or "who has the best one"

Yeah the Cat Cams are really the only best option aside from some custom set up that you can go for to get any improvement.

And you would need the tune to awaken them once you get them on. (hence the tune talk)

But it's not significant enough, from what I understand, unless you are building your block up for some major power they don't do a whole lot more than the stock SVT ones.
