Default Is it worth stage2 cams, valve springs and retainers?

I want to put some cams in my car, and was thinking bout the Skunk2 stage2 cams w/ the skunk2 dual valve springs and retainers. Gonna run bout $1000. Just wondering if its worth it? Im gonna be turboin my car within 2-4 months, will stage2 cams run fine with a turbo? Oh yea its on a b16a2..2000 civic si. Havent ever really messed around with internals too much before so ne help of ideas is appreciated. Thanks

it's not worth getting the skunk2 stage 2 cams if you are going turbo within a few months. these cams are only good for N/A setup. however, upgrading your valves, valve springs, and retainers is always good. the best cams for turbo would be ctr cams, itr cams 98-00 spec, or skunk2 stage 1's.
