Default Pro flo XT (any sheetmetal style) and cam selection

I just bought a Pro Flo. One of the reasons I chose the Pro flo was because I am going turbo in a few years and I also believe it will work well with my current set up. I know that when running a victor jr it is better to run a tighter LSA, like a 108-110. My question is, does this hold true for a sheet metal style intake like the Pro Flo xt and the new Holley l92 intake?

I'm running the proflo xt on my GTO and live it....only problem is how tall it is...I had to cut the hood and add a small scoop.

It is on top of my 408 with a 255/263 .624/.624 115lsa cam with excellent idle end pulls all the way to my 8,000 fuel cut off.
I actually couldn't believe how broad the power range was, so I dont see why you couldn't go a lot tighter on lsa and still perform great.

What kind of power did you make with your set up?

All street tune and never been on a dyno, but I can easily spank a sportbike

Also with the cam I'm running I have 12.5:1 compression (8.22:1 dcr).

I was every impressed with the price vs performance of this intake....when I bought mine it was only $365 through Summit racing, but I was looking the other day and saw the price was uproar around $550 now....still worth it in my opinion
