    CAT-CAMS they offer some - really nice cams too!

    any idea which of those cams would be better for fast road/maybe track day use
    The one part number of 1303911 - will give you the best gains without a silly idle and wont need to change any of the valvetrain.

    You could do further but it would be lumpy / very lumpy at idle and will cost A LOT in new valvetrain! As well as many other mods!

    How much you looking to spend?

    haha don't say that I could spend your money for you very easy :P

    OK.... next questions are... are you seriously thinking of forced induction? And what kind of power are you really looking for?

    300bhp will be more than capable with that supercharger kit.... but I will have to do some digging on ur engine info and spec to make sure it will be able to cope with it all as well as working out the recommended size of the charger to suit boost level and volumetric flows etc etc etc it does get a little involed.

    I will be buying their brackets and making the rest (bar the charger) for a 350bhp conversion on mine...... I will do some checking and be back with you. But I would expected costs to be around 3-4K ish plus brakes/suspension etc etc
