    it would probably run without a remap
    but you would be much better getting it remapped to get the best out of the cams

    the cams dont really make any effect (performance wise) without a remap

    What else have you done to the engine? There would be things I'd do before cams (catback exhaust, airbox/inlet mods) to get more from the cams.

    You would gain from cams without a remap, but not likely to their full potential, and as far as I know, you'd have to drop very mild cams in to not need a remap.
