Would a trickflow stage 3 cam work good with a turbo?

I picked up a tfs stage 3 cam that I was going to be running on my car.

(I bought it thinking it was a stage 2 until I double checked the part # & realized it was a stage 3)

My setup was going to be:
n/a
Victor 5.0 intake
tfs cnc twisted wedge 205 heads
1.7rr's
long tubes w/3" exhaust
ud pulleys/msd digital 6 etc....

Well I ended up just realizing that I would just go turbo instead.

I currently have a b303 cam in the motor & I am trying to figure out if the tfs3 cam would be worth putting on or should I trade the cam for like a stage 2 or just leave the b303 cam?

I am looking @ getting a on3 turbo kit & run about 12lbs of boost.

I have a tfs street heat intake at the moment; should I swap out for the ported victor 5.0?

I've ran a e303 cam before on a turbo car & it did great; but I don't know too much how to figure what kind of cam would be good for a turbo car.

(car is a 5speed btw w/3.27 gears running 18" Mickey t. drag radials if that matters any)

thanks.

If the car has a stock block in it, just run the stock cam.

i would be willing your would see a better power curve with teh stock cam. the TFS stage 3 is a for highly modified N/A applications. the stock cam s have more exhaust duration to help teh turbos spool better. a turbo cam would be the best bet.
