Need an "out of the box" turbo cam, any recommendations???

I'm only keeping my stock shortblock for this season while I save up for a better shortblock. I researched the "custom" camshafts that are around and they don't seem worth the money for a stock shortblock that is only going to be around for a year.

What I would like to know is if anybody can't point me in the direction of a good out of the box cam, or point me to somebody who can recommend me one, or something...

Everybody and their mother around here has letter cams and I'd like something different and hopefully more powerful...

I've run the F303 on several turbocharged 5.0L's, including my daily driver. It's been my experience that the wider LSA of the F vs the E cam makes it a little more turbo friendly.

Why not stick with the stock cam for now? The stock cam will support enough power to split that stock short block. I'm in the same boat as you... plan on running the stock shortblock again this year while I build up a "race" motor for next year.

The stock camshaft was damaged, I figured I can get some extra hp while replacing it...

With the proper size turbo, the stock cam should make more power than any alphabet cam across the entire rpm range. It might be worth finding another. It should be the same with any other ots cam too. This is mostly due to the wide lsa and shorter durations than most others. They're cheaper too!
