Default question on cam selection with boost , please help

I have a 07 boss mustang and I have majority of the bolt ons installed now.. I plan on next summer on buying the hellion turbo kit but I want to install cams before I do that.. does it matter on what type of cams I buy with or without I boost? I plan on pushing like 11-12 lbs .. I'm looking into Ford motorsports hot rod cams or Ford racing mother thumper cams .. what would u suggest on cam selection? Also does anyone know if the hellion turbo kit comes with turbo exhaust manifolds ? I want to buy long tubes but I don't know if that would work with the turbo kit I plan on buying .. thanks for the help !!!

I want the Hotrod cams too, I talked to my tuner and have seen a few people with the Ford Hot Rod cams with turbos and they work ok.
peak gains will be with a blower cam though. but I just love that idle with the hot rods

The hellion kit comes with a reverse Y to get back to the turbo. you can use long tubes you may just need a lil pipe tweeking

to give you a look at how its set up

your best bet is custom grind. Same price and exactly what you should be running. Call Bullet Racing and they will hook you up. Also if considering going turbo, dont waste your money on long tubes...

Ok thanks guys I appreciate it, I think what I'm gonna do is just buy the hot rod cams and put long tubes on it for this summer and determine the rest when the time comes,because we all know money is tight now a days .. now that being said what size injectors should I get? I'll problky get the bbk fuel rails to and plugs and wires . I already put 3;55 gears in,spec aluminum flywheel , bbk throttle body,sct livewire tuner, and it came with full coil over suspension and manifold back saleen exhaust ,and ram air intake .. if you have any other ideas please let me know I'm trying to get ready before the drag strip opens up ..
