stock turbo + cams

Recommended Posts

Looking at the tomie poncams or hks 256/264, leaning towards tomie..

 

What are peoples views on running cams with the stock turbo?

Is it worth the performance and money?

there is nothing wrong with running cams with a stock turbo.

 

depends how much its costing you and what you've already done to the car....

depends what u are after, economy, low down torque, top end torque. stock turbo wont matter too much though. you would be bettter off going more standard mods if u dont have them already though. just my opinion

stock s14 turbo is a pretty good turbo so u may as well go 4 the cams- its heaps cheaper than a new turbo anyway

be careful of the lift in the poncams, over 10.5 lift i have been told can wear out the valve springs, and I think the tomei is something like 11mm

 

If you aren't going to rebuild the motor and strengthen it with forged internals I personally would stick to the HKS step 1 256in 10mm/264out 10.5mm cams AND retain VCT if you have it.

If you put really large duration cams, 260+ degress, and lots of lift 12+mm with the stock turbo you can start having problems with reversion
