Also, if you have any suggestions on changing something within the setup, just post up. (also gears are needed)

Here is my Setup : (kinda long)

Forgot to mention , this cam is actually a Lunati Custom Blower Cam. (299 bucks)

I had a B&M blower ontop of the car, but took it off for more power (150+ shot) ...

Also, you can check out my old site for pix if youd like.. Thanks agian

That cam was probably ok when you had a blower on it but has too much duration for the compression you have. That with the 3.23 gears means it probably won't pull real hard off the line. I'd look for something in the 230 @.05 range with a 110 centerline and go with at least 4:10 or 4:56 gears. Just a thought.
