I suspect you're looking at a LSA of 114 because someone told you that you need a wide LSA with a blower. BULLHOCKEY.
Blower Drive Service has been dinkin' with Roots blowers for 40 years and they say that you want to use 110 LSA with gasoline and a wider LSA for use with alcohol.

This is one of those urban legends that gets twisted around because someone left off the fact that the wider LSA is for alcohol.

Here's the verbage from BDS....
"The lobe center of the cam will play an important role in determining the performance characteristics of an engine. Wide lobe centers (112 to 114 degrees etc.) will create higher cylinder pressure providing more horsepower with cooler burning fuel such as alcohol and methanol. We have found 110 lobe centers to produce the best overall power on gasoline. Whatever cam you choose, make sure that it will operate and perform properly in the RPM range required for your application."

My recommendation would be to talk with the techs at BDS and ask for a cam recommendation for your particular application.....
