Thinking of going back to my stock cam

Any opinions on what kind of power I would lose going back to my stock cam? I am currently running an E cam - not the greatest for a turbo, but not terrible. I am getting ready to go with a Tweecer to tune the car, and I think I will have an easier time of it working with the stock cam, and keeping everything else the way it is. Just looking for anyone's thoughts on the matter.

Just a comment here: I really like my stock cam (advanced 4°) with 1.7RR on my turbo setup.

I haven't had the E-cam so I cannot really comment about the difference.

My stock 1990 GT cam is 206°/212° @ 0.050'' measured by me (yours might be quite different).

The more I think about it, the more I think it might be a good idea. Of course, with the straight pipes out the back, the e cam is nice and lumpy - it sounds real nice. Well, if the stock cam can ease tuning issues, I can always make up any power loss with a turn of the boost controller.

Stock cam in a 94GT is not the same as a Fox body. I believe it is the same as a 5.0 1993 Thunderbird.
