227 on a 185 cc head? That's pretty bad, now I think no cam will help that
If you go to he had a cylinder head shoot out using pro comps, patriots and brodix. I found it interesting but those heads he has came in last.

Patriot 23 Deg 185 Out of Box CHW SF600 Alum 185/- 2.02/1.60 N/A
0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.7
56/53 101/83 147/114 190/137 227/155 245/171 248/177

This didn't copy and paste too cleanly but its flow numbers for the patriot 185's. Depending on application a single pattern cam would not be out of the question.
