The first set of cams I bought for my build have gone walk about as the engine builder didn't bother building the engine so got everything back less the cams.

So now I'm after a set of cams but don't know what to get, it's a fully 11.5 cr forged engine, upgraded valve train and have got itb's going on them.

So whats the best cams to get?

With 11.5:1CR Skunk2 Pro2s. Your pistons may need some clearance work though.

Skunk2 are the safest bet. Crower don't give as good a gains. I think Jun are between Pro 2s and 3s, but cost a fair bit more.
