I dont know an exact cam number for you. I'd prob try something like Comp Cams xtreme series hydraulic cam. They are a pretty radical cam and should work good as long as you put the right springs with them. If you have to run hyd definetly run the anti pump up lifters. Also if you can id look at running 1.6 rockers on the intake at least.

I think on a restricted engine like that compression is key. You will be limited due to stock heads and flat tops but try to get as much out of it as you can.

Call up camcraft (they are a sponsor for this site) and talk with Charles. I've posted this before, but can't say enough about the guy. He knows his stuff, and can "turn" you on to what you will need. Prices are competitive too. Race on.

if it ain't fun, then don't run
