blower. always plan for the future not the instant gratification. youll only kick your ass in the long run. ESPECIALLY if you cant do the work yourself.

blower cams wont hurt NA, just wont be as much power as a NA cam. However it doesnt go the other way around, NA cams dont make good blower cams.

Since you are going with a blower so soon in the future, then I would definitely go with a set of blower cams. You will be leaving a bit on the table while it is still NA, but you will be happier once you end up getting the blower.

On lower boost levels, it really doesn't make a huge difference as far as choice in cams. Anything will be a lot better than stock, but the more pressure you run, the more a blower cam will work in your favor.

cms stage 2 blower cams work well n/a. for a KB i would look into mph grind for kb's(tim works for norms garage now)

I have vt/cms stage 3 blower and unless you turn a lot of rpms they would not do too well n/a

They have little to no overlap to prevent boost loss

If you plan on getting a KB, then I wouldn't waste my time looking anywhere else but here for your camshaft needs. Hands down the best cams for that type of blower

people want that killer, super, im the biggest badass on the street sound, yet it comes from overlap. Big overlap + boost = kick youself in the nuts bc you want to act like the cool guys vs the person that actually has a fast car. Generally speaking

As time goes this forum is getting worse and worse. Its just all about people wanting to sound cool, showing their new parts, etc in the tech section. In th eend its still a pissing contest.

Ps. If you want sound just grind your factory cam lobes with a dremel to any desire. im sure itll work well....Thats about the equivalent of matching your setup/goals with a set of cams based off of that "cool sound". Afterall performance dont matter, just as long as you sound cool.......Along with everyone else that rips on rice rockets but they want hids, and all this other visual bullshit on a simple bolt on non track car.

bigboy, what is more important to you.....the best cam for your setup or the best sounding cam?

Right or wrong I have comp 278 and 2.8H. The 278s have very similar specs to several stage 3 or 3.5 blower cams. I was building new so had pistons fly cut and it was to tempting not to try 278s. It's a new setup so no numbers yet. The idle is very aggressive even with cats and magnaflows.

It will be interesting to see how setup this works out.

To the OP save your $$$ on cams and put it to the blower. You can always install cams later but you need the blower now! To may 350+ rwhp stock sports cars out there today.
