How about doing research yourself to find what suits your needs the best?

You should give them a call and talk with a tech advisor, let him know what your goals are in this engine your building. If you went with a huge cam, a thicker headgasket would be required for the compression ratio your running. Im sure the "street" cams will suffice without a thicker headgasket and will gain you some HP and TQ.

Well Comp Cams offers a street/strip cam that changes the lobe/lift value by .060" which is significantly noticed during 4,800rpm increase. Since our valvetrain is focused on exhaust cam for VVT closing early to increase reduction on emissions, I would suggest going with their intake camshaft and requesting a .055" cam lobe/lift cam made by ZZP to accommodate valve overlap process. You will not require a thicker head gasket and once a proper fuel trim tune is set, you will notice an increase in power total.
