What do you mean by now getting enough "kick"?

Based on your CID and 180cc Dart heads, my thinking your cam has too much duration. A 230/236 is best in a 383 or larger CID engine. What that does is move the power band too high in the band and without a lot of rear end gear the engine will feel soft down low.

That cam is a little big for a stock rear gear, but not too terrible. You can move up a little on the gear later after your rear end explodes. I'd go with a RPM intake over the Vic Jr. though, the Vic Jr either needs more cubes, or more gear to make it shine. Be sure to check quench distance- it'll have a big effect on power and tuning.
