Default A cam + turbo exhaust on NA 1985 245

Does the fuel Injection system have enough excess capacity to accommodate an A cam swap and turbo exhaust without additional modification to fuel delivery / pressure / injector / ecu ?

That should be fine. I ran a K-cam and a turbo exhaust for a while on a stock tune without hurting stuff.

Yes, no issues. I ran that setup for a period of time.

I have an A cam in my automatic trans 91 245, it definitely benefits from the adjustable cam gear to lower the rpms of the torque curve. If you are manual you probably won't need it.

Ran the similar B cam in an '84 245GL with the iPd exhaust. Was fine. Had a little more oomph over the M cam, but still a decent "daily driver" cam. Also ran a K cam in an '85 245DL many years ago. That one was fun.

No issues with LH2.2 running an A cam. Existing 19 lb/hr injectors will work fine. I only needed larger injectors when running an H cam (24 lb/hr) and then only over 3000 RPM at full throttle on my 83 B23 with LH2.
