Turbo Cams vs. Bigger Turbo

So, my motor has to come out again to change head gaskets and most likely head studs as well. I made low 500s before but I want upper 500s this time around. Since the heads to need to come off and be checked anyways, I was thinking of just doing turbo cams and keeping my 62mm turbo for spooling purposes. Thoughts? Thanks...

You already know!

Get the cams for what head and turbo your running.

Unless you have the exact same setup your cams are probably useless.

Just saying

I would personallly do a billet 6765 and turbo cams if u can...any reason why u blew a headgasket though? With a 62mm and stock tty bolts you shouldn't have any problems.

there must be a reason why you blew your head gaskets and so changing the cam and/or turbo won't solve that problem. pk's $0.02

We're not %100 sure yet cause the motor isn't out yet. I'm guessing that there was too much timing in the tune...

My .02, if you do cams, do a mild stg 1 turbo cam or something if you only want upper 500s.

No sense in over camming it with such a low goal...sounds like you could get there with a few more PSI of boost.

Maybe, but the 62mm turbonetics was pushing about all it had when I had it on the dyno last and 14-14.5 PSI is all it would make for whatever reason. I know a 67mm precision(EXPENSIVE!) or something like a 72mm turbonetics could also get me there, but I don't wanna trade power for lag. From what I've seen in the 2V world, people usually stick with either MMR or MHS turbo cams, would a stage I even be worth the money? I was thinking stage IIs....

Yea, that would probably be the better way to go...maybe try some stg 2 cams and see how it responds and go from there.

Thats wild that the turbo would only make 14 psi though....how is the waste gate setup?

Springs or boost controller?

going with a bigger turbo = more lag.....on the same setup with no other changes

on the 62-70mm setups there basically is no lag from what ive been able to tell. i had a 62-1 and it ran out quickly. it made good power but theres potential for alot more power with the 67 and that extra power will more than make up for any lag

I know nothing about mod motors buy what about the turbonetics t66. It's under a grand if you wanna try out a bigger turbo. I know alot of people like the t60s series in mild cars

Thanks for the tip, I'll do some research on it...


EDIT:

Are you speaking of the turbos being sold in this thread? Hurricane series?

The turbo is the heart of your setup, Stock cams do great with turbo's already. I would get a better turbo over a turbonetics 62. If you go with a billet 67mm turbo you will actualy pick up around 1000rpm in spool. I would go with Comp or precision. If your interested in a Comp turbo shoot me a pm and I can get you a deal.

Yea, thats one thing ive noticed is that stock cams seem to be a pretty damn good turbo cam....judging by your power they are working well.

OP, your running stock HCI on that car?

540/560 on only 13 psi?

For comparison my car made 512/480 tq on 12~ psi WITH "stg 3" ported PI heads, eddy victor Jr manifold, 67MM billet wheel turbo, and hp292 blower cams.

Now im switching back to the stock PI cams and hoping it makes some more power....otherwise im kinda lost and think the power is way lower than it should be.

you guys do realize that there's more to a turbo than the comressor side right...
