can any gains in performance be made from using the intense stage one turbo cam, without the turbo being installed yet


CAM-901 - INTENSE™ Stage 1X Turbo Cam, duration @ .050": 211º/204º, lobe lifts: .323"/.320", valve lifts with 1.60:1 rocker arms: .516"/.513", lobe separation angle: 116º, intake centerline: 110º

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if you picked up some performance from it, it is definitely not a perfect grind for a NA application in anyway but what are your final goals? Think ahead for what your plans are and not to what it will do for you now. A perfect example was I built a 8.0:1 compression short block with stage 2 heads and a stage 2 blower cam and ran it NA on a stock pcm :eek: . I scanned it and fueling was actually pretty dead on, took it to the track and it ran low 15's at 92mph. Needless to say it was a shock, but no one had tried it. If your planning on a turbo a proper cam will give you some nice gains, don't give yourself the short end of the stick in the end. Just some advice.
