Default BC 272's who has them

So I am looking at doing some of the BC 272 cams but would like to hear your input on them. I have done a search and nobody really seems to have any info on how the car drives afterwards and other mods that you have done. I am particularly interested in stock headed 205 motors.

it should be pretty nice on a 205 with a high flow turbo that can take advantage of the lift.
I definitely felt some upper rpm band power gained on my friend's 257 hybrid with wrx heads and his SR56 turbo. Nice idle too. I hear they have the less lift the the Kelfords but a nicer price tag.

What are your engine mods? If you have stock (or similar smallish turbo) and no headwork, then 272s are a waste IMO and less aggressive cams will be a better option.
