Buy a blank cam set from Crate Engine Depot, then you can have a shop you trust grind it however you want.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

Don't go any higher than stage 1 cams unless you have a source of tuning..

if you go so call stage 3 cams,beware it will only work well with a supercharger and possible a turbo not 100% sure on that part.
