Changing cams doesn't require removing the heads so it doesn't have to be so tempting.

I replaced my SC engine with a 930 engine for an immediate 100HP gain. For under $10K more you can take the next leap from 300HP to 400HP. The leap from 400HP to 500HP starts the exponential climb of diminishing returns.

The best bang for the buck is spent staying below 400WHP concentrating on torque and lowering the boost threshold. Another viable option is re-gearing the tranny to better use what you have.
