Nizpro do some high lift cams but they are a bit pricey. These are the same cams as in their 1000hp turbo motor. I think Jim mock has already developed some BA and BF cams.

Why would you want to change cams on your XR6T??

What mods have you done so far? There are Turbos that are making over 400rwkw and still have the factory cams! There are so many things you can do that would give you more power for less $$$.

yeah, i've mentioned this in another post but i think response is really what i'm looking for, so i'll probably start with intake/exhaust, then see where i'm at!

The idea is to take the car into the peak torque zone where cylinder pressure is at its greatest and the rings are forced against the bores, thus preventing glazing of the bores. So only crack it till 2500-3000rpm on an xr6T while your running it in. When its almost run in then you can wind it out a bit more.

you're dead right xcabbi, they call this "positvely accelerating" personally i went to 3500 - 4000, this was where the cam timing changed so that worked for me!

check out www.fordxr6turbo.com
u will find heaps of info on the BA's there, dont bother changing your cams, or your exhaust, as it is good for about 300+rwkw, just add a second CAI (bout $30 all up) and an edit (bout $1000 from CAPA) and get it custom tuned, u may want a bigger intercooler and cat if u plan on goin beyond 300rwkw though...
