Default HP 500 to 540

I have a HP500 motor that I had a main bearing spin on. I had the motor reworked into a 540 and had the machine shop install a new crank, rods and pistions. This motor will have a Vortech supercharger on it running 5 lbs of boost. Will the stock HP500 cam still work or do I need to look into a different cam? I'm planning on using the stock cast heads on it as they are in great condition, and I was told they are very good heads.

At this point, with the motor torn down, why not spend a few hundred more and get the right cam for the package. RMBUILDER could most likely help you out with this one. It should put some extra ponies under the hatch.

Another vote for Bob RMbuilder, give him every detail about the engine posible. He will give you what you are looking for.
