Have you thought about getting your original cams re-profiled?

The best cams for the money are probably standard ones on a 1./1.6 16v road car without other major mods.

What engine is it?

There was meant to be a 4 after the 1. to make a 1.4/1.6 16v.

The 1.4 and 1.6 share the same cams except the the c16xe has a hotter exhaust cam i think.

Get a replacement inlet manifold before you think about cams.

you only need springs and followers if you are buying a very wild kit. These wont run on standard management.

They all have different specs of cams in their ranges. From mild to wild. They will be able to advise you which will work ok with standard management. You can only get away with fairly mild ones with standard management as you cant use vernier pullies. Thats why I said they are not really worth it on these engines. You'd be much better off putting the money towards a new inlet manifold.

You'll only gain about 5bhp from cams....

I cant really reccomend any tbh, someone here should be able to though.
