I would recommend a street friendly cam. Mine is Texas S&P 231/236 to keep my car manageable in street traffic, no lurching and the nice characteristic it has is you wil have moderate low gear torque with a solid gain in mid gear topping off with a healthy push before shifting. Sweet spots never felt so sweet.

Currently running 455hp with 426 torque.

Friend of mine tomd me this about mild cams to...

as far as cam, bigger isnt always better for boost. So the fact that you have a mild cam would be better for a boosted application. On a big cam, normally the overlap (amount of time that both intake and exhaust valves are open) is greater. Which is better for an N/A application to use the exhaust scavenging ability to increase TQ and HP. but on boosted, if you have more overlap... the boost is just blowing through the intake and out the exhaust. So a mild cam is better normally.
Taxe S&P long tube headers 1 7/8 w/ cat, SLP LMII, Speed INC. yune, BMR Sways, Roto-Fab induction.

Street friendly lope.
