Turbo cams use less duration and favor the intake side while n/a cams are the opposite.

Ok, I was just curious. I have the 260 HP 350 in my truck and fiddled with the idea of putting a turbo on it.
​​​​​Just a pipe dream at this point.

Just your basic, boring, Chevy Haters 350/350 combo. I went with the 350 trans because it was cheaper & the axle ratio is 3.08.
