    What size turbo? If you have something small like a 60 or 67, there is no need to swap cams, the power band of your stock cam fits those guys pretty closely.

    If you are only at 5psi why would spend all of the money and time to swap cams for the most minor gain? You have a wastegate, keep it shut until 8-9 PSI and you will pick up afar more power with just retuning (assuming you aren't still lacking basic crap that the kit should have come with like an FMIC)...

    If this leaves any questions, post up

    Well the engine has some kinda F14 cam in it but not sure what the specs are. The engine is being rebuilt and I have time to put the a new cam in it if needed. will the cam hurt my hp if I leave it ,go back to stock or put something better? If it wouldnt hurt it I would love to leave it there.
