Best centri/turbo cam

Starting to look for camshafts for the winter build. I have a Procharger p1 and am looking for the best camshaft for my setup. The power will be going through a 4l80 with a 3500 stall so I'm thinking a good mid to high range cam. Does anyone have any recommendations and video clips. Also stock cubes with ported heads are all I'm planning on for now.

I guess I'll be the first to say but why not a custom cam?

I'm all for a custom cam I'm just not sure where to even begin on specs.

When I was looking Patrick Guerra popped up a lot. Maybe CamMotion and Brian tooley? If you know your goals that's the best way to go

Martin@Tick has done two cams for me. Nailed them.
This is the cam he did for my Ysi.

I wouldn't fool with ported heads. Bang for the buck would be quite low with a P1. Wouldn't go apeshit with the cam either. Mid 220's on the intake. Mid 230's on the exhaust. 113 or 114 LSA if you want some chop. 117 - 119 + advance if you want some smooth.

Ported heads on forced induction is not worth the cost vs gain.Cam it and call it. I was looking at Brian tooley cam.

Yeah, if you have to pull them off anyway, I wouldn't put stockers back on either. You won't gain much power wise. When you decide to get a bigger blower you'll be loaded for bear though

Got 132rwhp add with BTR Stage 3 turbo 230/235 .609"/.610" 114+4 cam and E85. Idles nicely but driveability is a little rough under 2,000rpm. If you're already in your heads, porting the throttle body and beefing up the heads will give you a little piece of mind but cost-wise, it's like the others have been saying. Going a bit milder on the cam wouldn't sacrifice much for the benefit of puttering around town.

He's will be running e85 as well. I called Brian tooley and he said because I have a 4l80 it would be best to just have a custom cam spec built.
