    Mckeown motors ports and oh I'm real upset I asked for a custom cam for when I go turbo he felt it was in my best interest that I should re do my heads as in complete rebuild and three angle valve job I would've bought new heads cus I need bigger heads when I go turbo but he never talked with me about it so now my limiting factor in my build is my cam which is a refs stage 1

    That's the only thing I don't really know is would I want a low lift cam for turbo or high lift?

    Turbo cams are almost always on the smallish side in comparison to a blower cam for instance. Example, My blower cam is .740/.730 and my buddies turbo cam in an almost identical setup is .648/.648
    If you need a good custom cam guy I have someone that I deal with and trust exclusively for my stuff. You could also call Bullet or Cam Motion.

    Moving out on your own is never a dumb decision. You have your priorities straight. I didn't touch my car for 4 years after I bought my house. Life takes over sometimes, but the car will usually always be there.

    Haha! We've had the same here in Western PA. I've been taking the dogs to the lake house every chance I get. There's twice as much snow up there as there is here at the house. Best part is that it's only a 15-20 min drive away.

    Can't wait till Friday afternoon. That'll be my next trip out there. Whole lake is frozen over.

    Good times. :nice:
