How much torque/hp are you putting down? What is all done to car? What are your goals.
As far as cams go, you will need to purchase valve springs. Uprgraded retainers really depend on the size of cams you go with.

you dont need to purchase spings....half the guys in the valvetrain forum are running 2.0's and their still on stock valves..BUT it prolly is a good idea to switch them out on bigger cams (and some cams do require different springs)

ported intake mani and big throttle body should come first.....water injection is a good idea......then cams and a built motor

its on the stock turbo. this happened when i put the wastgate on, it fit...but it wasnt like a perfect fit. me n my buddies had to like ghetto rig it and make the hole at the end when it clips on bigger bc it wudnt fit, and we had to open it a shit load just to make it long enough to fit also. and unfortunately when we were taking my stock wga off it was so rusted the rod piece snapped off. so basically when i get on it my boost gauge just go in circles, i dont know much boost im running, ik its more than 20, and then thing for the wga said itd be around 26.

you deffinately need to take care of that situation before you do anything else. get a wga that fits, and run about 20-21 pounds.

Really deppends on what you have planned long term. Cams and gears will really help the top end of any turbo set up as well as help (with tuning) with the EGT's. I say 14's or 12's so you dont have to swap out the springs and retainers with cam gears. $699 shippped and instock if you are interested, link: http://www.pt-performance.com/index.php?vID=1&cID=4.

After reading what you put, I think youve got bigger issues to worry about than what cams will help you blow it up.

Get your boost situation fixed first then worry about cams later. Im still not sure what you said you did with the wga deal......

he said it was a turbonetics at first.......thats why i was confused....yeah you have alot of work to do before cams are needed....yes you could slap them in now but you would never see the full gains from them

another question, if he is running 680 injectors with no FPR mod or RL wouldn't he be running lean as the fuel pump can't push out the fule into those injecotrs??

just wondering, + I would start on fuel mods 1st.

No pump is required on S2. The S2 injectors are 682cc at whatever the stock pressure is. I believe it's 58psi. Running the 75psi FPR mod will increase their flow rate.
