    If you are running a carb an rv cam seems fine. If you have tbi/tpi get a comp cams dual pattern cam, there is alisting at their website. As for the heads I am not sure, I just bolt them on and go. Now you don know about the grinding needed done to make crank clear block, and possibly the bolts on pushrod to clear cam. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
