    IMO...when your going turbo, cams mean next to shit...stock b16 or gsr cams will be perfectly fine...as far as the valve train goes, i don't see the need to upgrade unless you are going past the stock redline

    I'm not too familiar with what's good for turbo cams... but if you want to save cash, stay stock. Otherwise, go for good lift numbers, slightly longer duration, and enough room to close your overlap.

    use GSR cams. they are like 100 bucks... and with the right turbo, i've seen them keep a flat torque band all the way up to 9300rpm.

    I like the first and second plots- the 3rd one doesn't look too smooth.

    3rd one also has a home made manifold. that could very well be the cause.

    those are impressive numbers. i wonder when the day comes for me, if my h23 will be able to make more than 600hp with the right setup. (more so than the 1.8liter will be able to put out).
