I haven't seen a non-vtec turbo cam. In all honesty, I think that your best bet might be to look into swapping in a vtec cam. That way you can get something tame in the lower rpms, but a little more aggressive on the high end.

klunge is right, a lumpy cam is not what you want for turbo and when talking non-vtec, you have to either give up low end or top end... It is always a compromise. a vtec cam/head will give you a wider powerband.

what turbo are you planning on running?

cause a T25 or a T3 would boost alot lower than 5000rpms,now I could see a T3/T4 not boosting untill 5k

also delta has them, likely webcams as well.

personelly the stock d16a6 cam IMO should be a decent cam for a turbo street car if you cant find one.

What head/cam do you have now???
