Default Webb's turbo cam?

I've been searching, and found all kinds of fun talk about cams. I've seen nothing on the turbo version webb cams.

a grind version would be helpful

i'm running the 505+2.5 for the 1.8 HLA head. i haven't tuned them properly yet, but i certainly didn't lose any power when i put them in.

Webb's website doesn't show a turbo grind. Corksport says they have a turbo grind they have been using for BPt and B6t motors.

corksport uses the 505+2.5 grind, i talked to Derrick about this when i got mine (i got them used)

Hello Jon,

The intake camshaft is set at zero and the exhaust camshaft is set at -2.
Our car has a very modified cylinder head so I can't say for sure how well
these settings will work for you.

Thanks
Derrick

So they're just using the NA cams and adjusting out some overlap I assume? I come from the honda world in a former life, and we never forget about cams.

My experience with Webb is that you tell them what you want, and they will grind something for you. The more info you give them, how much cyl head flows, what rpm range you want, cubic inch, etc. the more likely you will get the correct grind.
