They key thing here with stock heads is to run a dual pattern cam. The cams rifraf mentioned are good or find one in the melling catalog in the 214/224 range with a LSA of 110 degrees. This will give you a lopey idle. Your intake is good to 5500 rpm so that limits you to a smaller cam. The Extreme Enegery cams fom Comp Cams have very aggressive lobe ramps and you must use the correct springs. The bigger the advertised duration compared to the @.050 duration the less aggressive the cam will be, the closer the numbers the more aggressive the cam. You will still make the same power but the aggressive cams will make it quicker over a bigger rpm range.
