    If money is not too big of a problem. Get the best... AFR, ETP, or Trickflow... not in that order, but those 3 are the best on the market... I love my Trickflows ;-).

    Not really sure, but you might be able to go a little bigger than the MS3. Personally, since you're going with a whole new setup you should have a cam spec'd out for your setup, I wouldn't bother with an off the shelf cam. That is if you want to maximize your potential.

    +1 TFs and a custom grind cam is in my opinion the best route although AFR and ET heads are great as well it all depends on what your long term goal is NA, NO2, FI shop around pay attention to flow charts etc etc

    Trickflow 215's ported have been out flowing the afr 205's, and are just big enough to maintain air velocity for our smaller cubes. Not saying the ms3 is not a good track cam but 500rwhp has been reached with with a stock stroke and smaller cam.
    What kind of intake you going for?

    Save ur $$ and ditch the edelbrock. Go with a ported FAST 90/90 and a Nick Williams throttle body.

    that's what I was thinking too... also like already said, with the bigger stroke you can go way bigger on the cam than what you can find off the shelf especialy if you don't care about street manners

    Pretty sure they do. They make the the 90mm throttle body, so I dont know why they wouldnt make the intake for it.

    TF and AFR are the most expensive, texas speed is great they just take 5.3's or 243's and port/mill them. Trickflow is a different cast.
    A vortech would be great if they can prove if and when it was rebuilt.
