f*#k that would be stout on the street! Cant really help in terms of cam selection, but give i *think* it was Marty from Crow Cams a call...tell him what you have, and what you want, and he should be able to help. Bigger lift would effectively "cheat" it a bit and help you gain a bit of air flow, but given rocker ratio I think, unless your VERY mild in terms of lift, going bigger wont be an option in terms of clearance.

Basically leaves you to either chase more RPM to gain more flow in CFM [provided the head isnt the cause of the choke]

Great powerband - area under the curve is solid.

At arrival of full boost, yourr making just under 100 more hp atw with 7psi more. Equating to a good uplift of about 10kw atw per psi.

You can see that this tapers to 70hp atw toward redline. That's about 10hp per psi which is ok but indicative of a potential restriction - most likely the cam as you suggest.

Do you have the specs of your cam - lift/ duration static and at 0.050") / lobe sep/ overlap ?

Also - have you put your head on a flowbench?
