The b303 or e303 are good to work with stock heads still should check piston to valve clearance when doing any cam

Either one of those choices and he'll be good with the PTV on stock heads.

Heres a link with all the specs on them I had a b303 cam in my last motor an it work great but I think the e303 is better an passes smog test if you still need to haha but you could go with the b303 an get 1.7 rockers to get a little more lift an the ptv should still be fine with 1.7 an a b303 I'd still work check if your doing it your self. Do you have stock heads? I would do the gt40 or gt40p swap at the same time if you still got the e7s just to get the most out of the cam

Your not gonna gain much if any with the B or E cam with stock heads , your better off changing your rocker arms to 1.7 with a stock cam until you upgrade your heads then swap the Cam and do it all at once!!

If you have stock heads leave the stock cam, you will not gain any power with a new cam and any stock heads minus the GT40s which you do not have. All a new cam will do is move the power band and you actually might lose power.

The sound you are looking for is obtained by overlapping intake and exhaust profiles. That's not gonna work well with stock heads. I would move to 1.7 RRs, it will be easier to do anyways.

Just save up and get some good lightweight alum heads. http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Flo-Te...ads,46332.html
Cheapest fully assembled alum heads on the market, with enough meat for a good port down the road, these heads will save 50lbs and with some supporting mods will dyno at 300rwhp

These are *bargains* but when I say CHEAPEST I mean it in both ways...

i'd look at some canfields as well, reputable company. the heads will not require clean up work to get right.

as posted above by scotty i would leave the stock cam, it really is a good cam for this engine and I have seen plenty of guys running 11's with it, not sure why everyone is so quick to ditch the thing, just run some 1.7's on the exhaust side of the cam.
