I don't recommend box cams. What I will do is try to get you to understand the cam you need..........

What do you have for head and shortblock. Stock everything........any port and polish? What final gear......how many RPM's you turning out there?

I personally like the .528 .538 cam but you have to make sure it has the right lobe seperation or it won't run as good. Some companies(some you wouldn't expect) will grind cams in a lot and not make sure of the lobe seperation specs!!! This will tend to **** you off!

You are a blue racer WG5022 candidate. Will run good with that combo. That gear ratio seems a little steep for my liking, however I don't know your track. I would limit rpms to around 74 or 7500. I like 2.14 3.08 setups...for longer 1/4 3/8mile deals and 2.0 3.45 setups for slightly shorter stuff....
