if you put a bigger cam & don't replace the factory springs you'll be needing that 408 alot
sooner than ya think!!!

Stock springs only have around 70 lbs. seat pressure. Maybe less if the engine has alot of miles. They are weak even for the stock camshaft.
If you don't want to change springs, and the engine is still running, it would be best to leave it alone.
