Going too big with a cam will make your engine lose a lot of low end power. Be honest with yourself on what you want and the type driving you actually do, for a street driven vehicle you may want just a modest cam to see the powerband in the rpm's you are mostly in. Get with a good mechanic or performance shop, talk with them before you spend money. If the cam profile doesn't match your other engine upgrades you may be badly dissapointed with the outcome... JMHO
