Definitely think it through. The cams for a NA setup aren't what you'd want to use with FI. If you think you might add a SC'er in the future, hold off on the cams (and do FI cams, 248/256, with or after the SC'er). Only do NA cams if you are 100% sure you won't want a SC'er later.

I can absolutely respect wanting to keep it NA but I can also tell you that after 3+ years and 50k miles of SC'er ownership, I would without question choose to do the SC'er all over again. Absolutely love it!

I bet! I want that much power! Its so tempting but then i would need a lsd and the entire project would cost a significant amount more. If i don't proceed with the supercharger Ill just get the cams and take another 200lb's out of the car...

lsd not neccessary at first. if you track it would be a big plus, traction in low gears it would help with, comming out of turns also.. reagardless not even talking about the supercharger lsd is a great upgrade and you should go from there if your into handling more than straight line speed

Drag radials, quick shifting. maybe a nice 1.90 60' time
