With what he has I would swap the cam and heads, as everyone has already stated. I can't believe any decent machinist wouldn't have said something when he was putting all that money into 882 scrap iron. And he probably paid a pretty penny for that cam when he could have gotten a much better one from Elgin, Erson, or Summit for less than $100 for the kit.
