How do you intend to use the car? Daily driver? Weekend toy? If you are going to use this as a daily driver and you're just looking for a little more punch I would recommend staying with a cam that has no more than 208 degrees duration @.050" lift and .450" lift if you want to use the stock springs and rockers. The lift is the critical measurement because when you add more lift you have to make sure that you have adequate clearance between the coils on the springs .030"-.040" minimum between each coil at maximum lift should be sufficient. But you should really consider changing the springs anyway because should anything go wrong with the cam most cam company's won't give you the time of day if you didn't use their springs with their cam.Take it from someone who found out the hard way. I hope this helps you out.
