few guys on ttf.com have been able to run some pretty wild tight lsa cams without very many issues so i figure this cam being a good bit tamer might actually just work out pretty good. if not i have the option to reinstall the summit 224 or maybe even try out the sum 234/234
Going bigger on the am will not help things, nor will a reverse split.

To run a bigger cam using the parts you have first start with a good turbo header system, and then look into increasing the exhaust housing size. With more overlap exhaust reversion becomes a huge issue a well built header and proper exhaust housing size can greatly eliminate a lot of that.
