    Hey guys, I'm pulling my motor to build the bottom end and have decided to build the head while its out. I am shooting for 325-350 WHP. What are the best cams for a turbo b16. Also I am thinking of going with ferrea valve springs/retainers.....let me know your opinions! Thanks!

    if you want to use factory cams i have heard great things about gsr cams in b16's for turbo. Aftermarket i have no experience however crower cams are always a good choice.

    Hey, I,m new to the site. I'm trying to find out what all i need to do to my B16 to be able to run about 15 ponds of boost safely. I dont know what compression i should run, the head work i need to do i need to know pretty much everything i need to do.

    I heard ctr intake and gsr exhaust cam is great combination for turbo. Im planning to go with this route. But on the other hand crower makes great turbo cams.

    A gsr intake cam and ctr exhaust cam would be a nearly identical setup to crower's turbo camshaft set.

    :thumbsup: to ferrea. They make good quality products. Ti retainers and stronger springs, correct? This isn't just an OE parts replacement, is it? I'd also do a diy port and polish; at least clean up the casting imperfections, and do a little portmatching of the manifolds while you can.
