If the engine was making the power you wanted at or close to the RPM you wanted,then make a slight change to reflect your needs
add 4 to 6 degrees or add .030 lift to raise RPM about2-3 hundred RPM,keeping same icl/lda

Need cam specs and head flow,not 316 degrees which im sure are advertised duration. Opening and closing points and lobe separation to name a few. Lift is matched to head flow.
