I would say if your planning on going turbo in the near future then dont put the N/A cam in. I just got (crower stg.2 N/A cam , springs, retainers,edelbrock cam gear, valve cover gasket,cam seal,timing belt,tensioner,water pump,thermostat,exaust donut gasket,koyo radiator,mugen cap,kenji p28. Im going to put it all in on dec.26th, I cant wait!!!

I would also have to say the same...If boost is the goal then don't put he $ out on a N/A cam and not get much back when you can just put the dough out once for the turbo cam... unless you come across a steal on the N/A cam..

Best of luck...

theres a few peopel on here that are running na cams on turbo setups, i believe beretta is one of them and he suggests it
it isnt going to hurt you, might have better gains than with a turbo cam, not sure if anyone has dynoed both or anything
talk to beretta
