Ted, I had the Webcam 20/21 grind in my Carrera with the Autothority chip. You may recall my engine had very low and lumpy idle and ran pretty rich. After a lot of investigative work and about $1000, my last idea was to put the stock chip back in there. Car immediately came back to life and was totally awesome. Cams did not really make themselves felt until about 4500 rpms, but they gave a nice pull then. To this day, I'm not positive if the chip I removed was really from Autothority, as there was no label on it. Someday, I may just go over there for the hell of it and have them take a look at that chip to verify that it's real or bogus. If you go with new cams, I'd budget for a dyno run at Autothority and have them map out a custom chip for you.
