    Default camshaft for 304 turbo(maybe roller cam)

    anyone out there got opinions on a turbo grind camshaft for a vn engine I have pulled engine out for a few other niggling things and thought whilst its out maybe do a boost friendly cam. I have talked to camtech they recommended me a cam with the following specs adv/dur 272/276, dur @50 224/230, lift 520/535, lsa 113.which seemed reasonably priced and im keen but I just thought I would take on some opinions first have also been reading mick355 affordable roller cam conversion and really like the idea of a roller cam/lifters but don't wanna overcapitilise on standard bottom end.Has anyone priced up the rollercam conversion lately with the dollar the way that it is.Id like to hear about all camshaft combos and supporting mods.

    call total performance in Victoria or Kavanagh auto parts be your best bet for cam and lifters

    Anyone wanna share their opinion on this cam for flat tappet or is it worthwhile looking at rollercam I know flat tappet would be cheaper but roller appeals as no enduring run in and spring changes needed or maybe just leave as is ?? Im definitely considering a whole new engine rebuild(and have talked to a few engine builders) to suit boost but looking at least 7 -10k for that which maybe over and above what I need/want FOR NOW just looking at matching a cam setup to suit budget SURELY there is opinions from learned people in the Aussie V8 world!! thanks Tuf72 I may call them and discuss.Im not a total tight ass but this is a 1600kg 4by with a confused personality hence the not wanting to invest 10K id much prefer do what I can for now then build myself a hq/torana or something of the sort id happily spend 1-2K to get this thing moving(not that it doesn't go pretty good as it is)!!!

    That hydro cam sounds good - normally they offer a big unit . I asked about a solid grind and specs they gave me were 254@50 ???? too big . So i settled on 238-242@50 solid grind .
