Something to remember is that you will improve one area and sacrifice another. For example a whiplash cam will be very torque-plenty. You will drop off in horsepower however. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some cams make good power and lose torque. In order to help counter this you'll need a proper tune and look into maybe a new intake manifold, throttle body, valve springs, headers.

Supplying mods with a camshaft are pretty much necessary.
