Cams and turbo cars are usually good for really nice gains, I havent heard anything mentioned from anyone regarding cams.
It really depends on the car. For Evos, cams are a good power upgrade and something that people do quite often. On the other hand, there are not very many people (relatively speaking) doing cams on STIs, which have AVCS. The tuning in this community is too new to be able to determine how much impact different cams will be. My gut instinct is to say that with technology like VANOS and Valvetronic and (hopefully) the ability to control these through the ECU, cam upgrades will not be worth it.
