How do you determine what the right size cam for a engine build?

Just a little toy. No racing, no pulling. The vehicle will be driven on the weekends every now and then and maybe pull a couple of motorcycles occassionally. But for the most part, it will just be a weekend toy.

You need to look at the engine and the rest of the vehicle. A restrictive exhaust and manifolds won't handle much overlap. A tight converter and numerically low gears won't like too much cam either. Everything effects everything else. Do you have power brakes ? Do you need to pass emissions ? Are you looking for sound ?
