The heads will tell you how much power you could make,the cam will tell you what RPM that it happens and or if you will meet t he potential of the heads. the CR needs to be factored in. The cubic inches will also determine when the power occurs.
Ive given all of the above. So what cam fits in the designated slot? lets assume i want to run 5's in the 1/2 mile. Now that theres no such thing as a goal time to avoid surpassing accidently by making too much power... How quick do i want to go? As fast as my motor will push me.

With the data i provided what cam makes the best power? Its a simple goal. "The most power possible" I cant make it any simpler then this.

Heads: 200cc Intake port, 2.02/1.60 valves
Cubic inches: 383
CR: 10.5:1
Camshaft: ?

This question is open to anyone who would like to provide an opinion for the answer.
