If you ever want to go FI I've heard that anything above the mild/street cams will be a problem.

I'd make sure the valve lash adjustments had been made.

both the mild and the spicy cams can be run with a turbo. They don't have enough overlap to be an issue. But if they are the racer cam, they are strictly for NA use only.

Valve lash adjustment has to do with making sure the shims are set properly to push valves down the right amount and not slap. Ask the guy and if he get a "huh?" look on his face it wasn't done!!!

The Cobb cams, from what I have heard, will not pass emissions in the stricter states. They may pass federal though.

For Turbo use, the Mild/Street cams are better than Spicy b/c of less overlap.

Thanks Matt. Josh pretty much says that the Mild cams are better for FI on stock internals. If you went really wild with a fully built engine and made tons and tons of power, then the Spicy cams would probably be better.
