i assume you will be spinning motor pretty fast so you will need a cam designed for good high rpm . i would personally use a solid roller cam over a hydraulic roller due to issues with high rpm valve float .you will need valve springs that are designed for the high spring pressures associated with a solid roller cam .you will need an intake manifold and carburetor that will supply the extra air and fuel needs that the larger cam requires . header size also needs considered .
