It does not appear the current cam will be bad. Certainly not as bad as the 30-30 cam would be. But would the added midrange of this cam make it worth it to swap out. I dont do too much with roots style blowers. And never with smaller cams.
All I know is what I learn from talking to the engineers and racers who run this stuff. Blower Drive Service says that they have consistently had better results on gasoline with a 110 LSA, so that's the info I pass on to others who ask. They say that you may want to open up the LSA for alcohol, but tighten up to 110 on gasoline.
I wouldn't hesitate to use a 300hp cam with a small blower. Now, if you were to get serious with a 6-71 or 8V-71, then yeah, I'd want to stab another cam in there and re-piston the motor for forged and 8.00:1 or lower SCR.
