Are 264 cams good for a turbo set up, I remember somewhere a guy had ran 272 cams in a turbo 330 and made over 400whp. I'm not sure how lumpy the idle would be with 272 cams though. Sure does make a lot of top end power with the 272s, but I'm not looking for peak numbers

I dont know about the 272's, but I talked to bluejeansonfire and he said he liked the 264's over the 248/256 FI cams. This is on a turbo car btw. I don't think NA cams would work well on a supercharger due to its characteristics.

Ill probably be getting the 264 because of the smoother idle.

Stav, when you did the back seat, did you make the template using the bottom of the seat cushion, or just stuck some cardboard back there and traced the outline best you could.

I didn't use the seat cushion. I traced it out by measuring all the sides. It was a lot of trial and error, but after a few peices of plywood I got it right. If you want I can build one for you. If not, make sure you get at least a 1/4" thick plywood so it doesn't flop around while driving. Also, buy perforated plywood as it saves some weight. Again, this is all for the bottom part of the seat..for the top part that sits upright I reccomend a hard styrafoam insulation material. You can find all this at Home Depot. Hope that helps.

Lmk if you have anymore questions
