With that combination you should be able to run any cam your heart desires, I would look for something in the 305 adv duration category.

I would get a cam with 242 to 246 on the intake and 250 to 256 on the exhaust (at 0.050" lift) and 108 to 110 lsa. and 0.500 to 0.525" lift.

use diesel engine oil from now on (rotella 30w).

Now for the bad news...... if the cam went flat, there is a very good chance the rod and main bearings got chewed up.

just a note... if you want to make some more power, get some better heads. 200cc iron eagle darts would be a good choice. Could make another 50 hp with a better set of heads.
