Default proper camshaft selection

Hello, I am currently in the re-build mode of my 318 (5.2) . At 145,000 I spun a connecting rod bearing. The crankshaft just returned from the machine shop were it was turned on a lathe as well as all of the connecting rods. Heads have been completely been redone as well as cylinders measured and honed for new rings. My question is that I now will be hauling two lightweight sport quads around and was wondering if any of you have a aftermarket camshaft in yours and maybe which model. Im definitely looking for something from idle to around 5000 rpm but do not want to have to change valve spring profile or adjustable pushrods. Just a nice " BOLT IN " camshaft and lifter set. Bearings are already pressed in and ready to go.

PS OH ya its my first post as well. Thank you for the help. Lee Cox
