Turbo cams vs SC cams 4V...

Currently I have an S-Trimmed 98 Cobra with Crower stg 2 Blower cams.

Specs:


I just purchased a hot parts kit and plan on a 76mm turbo as soon as my Vortech stuff sells. Anyway, new cams are simply not in the budget. So, I either wait until I can get a set of turbo cams and still run the S-Trim for now, or sell the S-trim and run the turbo with the S/C cams....

I can live with the car being slightly less than optimized for a while. My question is how will the SC cams effect the turbo / motor / power output? I am looking for answers like "dont do it too much exhaust heat...", "should be fine just 20 HP off of the mark", or "don't do it because it will melt down"...

I imagine that these configurations have relative or similar effects between push rod and DOHC motors.


Thanks for the help...

I wouldn't see anything wrong with it. There is a lot of sales BS that goes into cam grinds. I have run "blower" cams in turbo platforms with good results. We have also seen "turbo" cams change alot in the past 5 or so years. As long as the cam timing is correct you will be making steps in the right direction.

Being a 4v motor you can dial out alot of the overlap and even if you dont you still should make very good power with them.

Nothing but slow chebby's right now.....

Thanks for the replies guys.

I am thinking about (for budget reasons) going with a Master Power T-76 Turbo for starters. I will up grade to a BB turbo in time but not now. Anyway, which A/R should I select? Is something in the 1.0xx range too much? I have a pretty built 4V motor....Fuel system is 60lb injectors -10 / -6 lines and twin 255lph pumps (parallel). I am running my S-trim @ 16 lbs now with a water / meth kit.

Thanks,
Tim
