    i dont think just the higher lift will get you want you want. If you want more lift just get different rockers. You should look at cams that have more duration and also if you drop the lsa it will help the power to come on sooner.

    What are you going for? Driveability or just a crazy sounding, loping, peaky powerband? Manual or auto? Mostly street or track? Also, driveability is different to everyone so it all depends on what you want.
