    Back in the pushrod days a boosted cal profile worked well for decent power gains and kept good drivability due to the overlap.
    Anyone have actual experience with them in the coyote arena?
    There is a set of turbo cams locally for a very, very cheap price.

    What exactly are your goals? Most aftermarket cams require locking out the phasers and thus only have gains in the high RPM range due to the lack of variable cam timing.

    Not coyote experience, just my :2cents:,
    To a point, I agree with Richard Holdener in that any cam can be a turbo cam.

    I haven't followed what tuners are doing with the VCT on Coyotes but in theory, you could manipulate the LSA (well, whatever the equivalent for an independently controlled DOHC would be called-maybe "phasing") between the intake and exhaust cam to spool the turbo quicker or slower and then optimize it at higher RPM's to keep the power band going.
    With most modern boost controllers, you can change your boost curve to suit just about any camshaft so the need for a specific type of cam isn't that necessary with independently variable cam timing.

    What lift/duration numbers do the cams have?

    In the coyote world NSR cams are going to be the best thing for a NA car. There are a couple people who design awesome cams. L&M Engines, Mike is a genius and Todd Warren @ ToddWarrenCams.

    these are 1/2 the price of new.
