Curious to know if you fit these then decide to fit a kenne on top whether they are still suitable?

They will work however a specific blower cam would suit better. Remember that you are forcing more into the cylinder with the intake open so you need to be able to get rid of it on the exhaust stroke. Its horses for courses, that is why there is specific cam profiles for blower, turbo and N/A.

Yes they do indeed, also the harmonic balancer and the front timing cover are removed, It is quite a involved process for the cams to be installed properly. I would suggest that you have a set of Billet oil pump gears or a Melling Pump with the Billet Gears installed as the factory oil pump gears are prone to failure.

thanks for that. I have been told by mechanic it has a slight gasket leak in one of the spark plugs that way it will be fixed with the cam installation. Thanks again

Hey guys not sure anyone has seen this for a while but I thought ill put my experience with Herrod 315 cams up. Got a FPV GS with 5.4L V8, after installing new Herrod CAI, Herrod 315 cams, high flow cats and straight through type mufflers, I got 285 rwkw on the dyno....and fuel use us up from 14L/100 on 98 octane to about 17L/100...so for a NA V8 it is great fun and a totally new car from stock, and sounds good!
