5.0 EFI cam work on carb'd motor

I have a rebuilt 1993 5.0 motor that originaly a EFI. It still has the stock EFI cam, but I have now gone to a Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, and a holley 650 dp carb, hooker header set-up. Will this cam still work well, or would I be better off to swap it out, and with what cam? FYI this motor will likely come apart in a year for a 347 upgrade.

I would leave the cam in it for know. When you stroke the motor than you will need a different cam no reason in buying two cams.
