+1 if you have all this money to go and build an NA car then just do FI its cheaper and you'll wee more gains for the price of all these NA mods to even hit 300whp you can buy a Vortech SC kit and be throwing down 340whp for cheaper do reaserch.... bottom line
I don't agree 100% with F/I over N/A. N/A does have benefits. Biggest one is classing in certain types of amateur and pro racing. F/I places you into a whole new ball game. Also F/I in the long terms cost more. Maintenance and up-keep is costly on a F/I car.

My post you quoted wasn't ment as F/I is "better" than N/A. More of that the owner needs to first figure out what the purpose of the car will be and what their budget is.

IE: I'm seriously considering a Z34 and plan on making it 90% road racing and 10% weekend cruiser. My first mods I feel will benefit me on the track are; oil cooler, better brake pads and, a wheel/tire combo. After that a Quaife diff. As I haven't done much research on mods for the Z34 I don't know what to do after that. But as you can see, N/A is my preferred choice over F/I. I guess owning a TT350Z has taught me a lot of the benefits & downsides of each.

I don't feel there's much need to rekindle the whole NA vs. FI debate on a thread that is dedicated to NA modifications. Each solution has its merits. And as Robert_K stated, many classes of racing dictate NA only, so any discussion of FI is pointless.

I'm having a **** of a time picking cams. The car is a daily, I want the idle to be relatively smooth. I want as much out of it as possible within reason.

Motor has Injen Cai, Motordyne MREV2, 5/16th spacer, ARTs, XYZ with resonator, headers, Agency Power Ti cat back, UPREV tune.

Build consists of 88mm Brian Crower crank BC Econo rods, JE 96.5mm 11.0.1 pistons +1mm Manley valves.

I have not bought the cams or springs yet I need help deciding on them.

The car is an 06 REVUP.

F/I is Force Induction. IE; Nitrous, supercharger/blower and/or Turbo(s).

With 11.0:1 you're going to have a bit higher idle. And from the sounds of it I would go with the JWT C8R cams.

I have no problem with higher idle, I just don't want it to sound/feel like a cammed muscle car.

I am already at almost 1000 due to changes made to get to 271/264 through UPREV on my current mods.

Thanks I will look into the C8R.

They are G37S size (14/13") and the calipers are Akebonos from a G37s.

Thanks
