Great choice on cam,just remember,high rpm's cost money,to keep the engine durable,so if it's life is going to be normal,not 5k rpm,stock heads will be fine

If I have to run one grade up so be it but ideally would not like that!
Whatever cam you decide on I'd go with a Cloyes timing chain. They are built like a rock and worth every penney.

To the man should you listen! Wise is he! Mmmmm.

OK all Yoda aside, I would go with a milder cam for a couple reasons. Gas mileage is one. Less tear on that new bottom end is another. one thing which many folks ignore about racing
parts is the shorter life span of racing engines, in general. When sponsors are replacing their engines after 2 or three weeks, what do they care?

Was looking at the lunati voodoo cranks, maybe that would be a better option?
