you will be a bit disappointed if you expect 'throw you in the seat' power from a cam. it isn't going to happen. it will be quicker, but not massivley. throw you in the seat power is when you get a large hit of power that comes with turbo's and nitrous oxide. if you want the feeling of been 'thrown into your seat' you will have to run boost or nos.

as above you want a huuge turbo or nawws

you just won't get the same effect from just fitting a cam. Certainly not one that doesn't require you to fit TBs and remap

to get the that kind of power it needs to be instant like nitrous oxide like i said. cams give a good power gain but its kind of like eased on power not like nitrous oxide where it's like 50-100bhp instant.
