This is a question, I'm just curious.
My intake manifold is stock, but exhaust manifold and so on are not. I run big manifold pipes for topend, and 4" exhaust all the way back, paired on a 76mm turbo. I find that the plenum intakes look to race to use in a daily car.

I would suggest an enem V16 turbo cam. The power band is 2500-6500 rpm. Or the nastiest cam without changing cam followers from enem is the K15 which would support that power quite well. A few years ago when I got one for Hank Scorpio enem made a turbo version of the K15 for him. That is what is in his old 242 with the Holset on it.

Interesting! did not know they do custom work.
I wonder why all the turbo cams do not really support a lot of revs.. I bought 56kg springs, which should get me up there, if i get a good cam to pair them with.
Might just be the fact that the redblock does not breath too well over 6k rpm

I have a V15 version in both of my sig cars. Their cams have served me well for many years.

Yeah i know of a lot of makes, just wondered if anybody had some dyno results with different cams, as the car is not exactly stock no more. Not that it is a race car, but i do not care a second if it pulls in the low end, i just want power when i get boost

I have one last question, where can i find a cam with asymmetrical grind? I figured some more duration and lift on exhaust will be the way to go.

With an IPD T cam or equivalent you should be able to pull some extra top end with some cam gear tuning. I am about to try one, anyone have any good results retarding the cam a few degrees?

RSI stage 2 turbo cam or KG2T have more lift and duration on the exhaust side.
