quik spool run cool better mpg smoother idle
All is true but the mileage. No one here that I seen can back up any mileage gains. Thats why I haven't done.

I assume a cam would help a larger single turbo with towing (ie: quicker spool and lower egts).

Cam can be helpful for a large singel but are not needed till you have maxed every other option out, ie twins, big stix. Cams are more for that guys trying to squeeze out that last HP. So if you planning over 800hp add one. If you going to be in that area of the engine-go for it, but if you just doing it to add, save up for twins.

I second that motion. You can make a lot more impact for a lot less in other areas.
