    Hey i was looking into buying a cam for my Z6 and was wondering if i should go with a street/strip cam or a turbo cam. I am running the JRSC on 6pds with all other mods listed in my sig. Do you think that i will have to have valvespring and retainers replaced as well?? im porting the head myself and getting a valve job, any advice is welcome thanks

    give Zex a ring, and I would suggest to leave the porting to the pros :)

    Crower makes a turbo (FI) grind SOHC VTEC cam:

    http://www.crower.com/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?prod_id=63441T

    [​IMG]

    Stage 2 - Designed specifically for turbo charged and supercharger applications. Features short duration and high lift. Requires springs and retainer kit

    You want the stage 2 "T" model.

    Skunk2's turbo grind cam is still "TBA" according to their web site, and I haven't heard of anyone buying it yet either.

    Crower has the D cams for only $321 on their site, and that's quite a bit less than I'm seeing Crower cams sell at a lot of online stores too!
