    Dude, you're all over the place with plans for your car. First you were talking about a B-series swap, then an H-series swap, then a K-series swap, with all kinds of other questions about parts for various engines scattered in between. Think about it and make a definitive decision on the route you want to take before you worry about purchasing any turbo parts.

    And yes, the E-Bay kits are junk. You'd be better off taking your time and looking for deals on quality parts then buying some cheap shit off of E-Bay...

    *sniffs air* Do you smell that? That's the smell of BURNT bacon. :D

    To the OP, this is slightly off subject, but since Brutal did post that, did you ever finish your K-Swap? :eek:

    A "stage two" type cam is meant for an N/A build, not for forced induction. The specs on an N/A cam aren't really ideal for a turbo application. They have special cams which are specific to boost. You'd want one of those instead.

    This is the problem with not planning out your engine build beforehand, and just throwing shit on as you go. Eventually you'll come to a point where you realize a part that you've previously put on the car isn't really ideal for the direction you're wanting to go...

    Such as, if I may suggest, a Skunk2 Stage one turbo cam. If you're building anything else but a D, they do offer the Skunk2 Stage 2 turbo cams which is what I am personally going for in my build.

    Is it the one specifically for turbo, or just the regular stage 2 cam?

    What was your old screen name?
