    Cam selection for a boosted application is completely different than one for N/A. You should speak with someone like Andy at A&A who designs boosted engines on a regular basis. In this case, bigger may not be better.

    +1. You can, however run a larger lopy cam on a supercharged application since you don't need to worry about valve overlap like you do with a turbo.

    I recommend cam motions, call them with your specs and have it custom ground the cost is the same, as off the shelf but no guess work.
