Hi Jim

Turbo engines operate with exhaust manifold pressures somewhat higher than
intake boost pressures. this situation, when presented with long-duration,
high-overlap cams, creates a huge amount of reversion.
The "Turbo cam" tends to become a low-duration,very limited overlap cam.
It's hard to find a turbo cam that works better than the stock cam
