Should I go with a cam?

Next week I will be pullin this motor out and putting a freshly rebuilt 306 in it along with a Hellion turbo kit. I was just wondering if there's a cam that I could go with that will make more hp and tq than the stock cam. Basically I want the turbo and also for my motor to have a little lope to it, but I've been reading posts that say smaller cams are better with turbos which is why I'm posting this. Thanks a lot

Keep the stocker, It's good with the turbo. Throw some 1.7's on it and go.

i too, would keep the stock cam..........I believe that what gain you may see is going to be minimal at best.....

I liek the stock cam also, smooth idle and great driveability. But, i just installed an F cam and they are supposed to work real good and you get that lope. I havnt installed my Incon kit yet, but i am sure it will run real hard. The drivability is good too with the F cam cause its a mild cam at most.

The thing about turbo cars is they tend to run like stockers. You don't need to compromise how the engine runs to get great power. This is nice for OEM manufacturers but for people who want their cars to sound badass, maybe not the greatest. For a turbo, you don't want alot of overlap on the cam. You need to preserve your exhaust pressure to spin the thing. That being said, some of the motorsport cams are supposed to work pretty well with turbos. I would like to see a straight up comparison on a dyno of Stock, B, E and F cams in a turbo car.

Hotwheels-keep us posted on that one. This is to replace that motor with the slight oil pressure problem? That video makes me paranoid everytime I look at my gauge.

I liked the stock cam because it is quiet and the car drove great. The man building my new engine says it will be easier to make more power with an f cam. :shrug: I guess I'll get an F cam.
