    I was having the local shop do a valve adjustment last week. Well when they were done they asked me why i had diffrent cams. I guess my motor came from japan with b17 GSR cams in it. I was just wondering if i should get the B16 cams or if i should leave it be. the motor is stock as of this moment. I have my turbo set up just need to get it on. what cams will be better for turbo?

    they are both pretty mild. I'd keep the ones you have.

    I know Crower makes turbo spec cams if you're lookin to spend that 600 or so. I'm sure there are a few other companies that make them too, i just can't remember which ones I looked at.

    the cams you have in there now are fine for turbo. There are people who are using GSR cams making 300+WHP.
