Good Cam for 408 with turbo future

I have been slowly working on the chassis and suspension of my 89gt. I am getting ready to start building a motor for it. I had planned on just rebuilding the stock motor and adding a turbo kit like the B&G. My plan was to use a f303 cam. If I were to step up to a 408, would that cam be good for a turbo application? Or would I need a bigger cam, because of the increased cubic inches? I haven't bought any motor parts yet, so I am still open to suggestions. Thanks!

I would never run an F303 in a turbo 408. Spend the $100-150 extra and get a correct custom grind (I'm a happy FTI customer of Ed Curtis).
