what about gsc 280/272 cams?

what about the 280/272...how much of a differnce would that make compared to the 272/272 combo on a 35r setup? and if i did gsc dual chromolly valve springs and retainers, how much higher if any, would I be able to rev safely, with a 35r turbo tuned right obviously? or should i do 280/280 on a 35r?

If you want max possible potential power on your setup I would have to say the 280's are best. However, the cams tend to fall off after 7000 rpm so going past redline probly won't net you any gains to warrant upgraded springs. Your best bet is to call [email protected] (also his SN on EvoM) and ask him for his recommendation.

I would agree that 280s would be best for making the most power with the 35R, because 280s are best when revved high, and the 35R makes the most power at high rpm and high boost. You may have to sacrifice low-end grunt and spool in this case, though.

well, if you look back at my first post, you will soon realize you answered 1 out of 3 questions. 1. I asked how much of a difference the 272 combo was from 280/272. 2. I asked how much higher i could safely rev with springs and retainers. 3. I basically asked if i should just do 280 cams. You told me i should do 280 cams. Now you were laughing out loud for what?

Well then in essence I answered all three of your questions. I said call GSC and ask them about the cams as they can give you the best answer. I also said you wouldn't need the upgraded springs unless you were increasing your rev limit (maybe a half answer there)

So what are you still asking?
