What is it going in? Car or truck, and approximate weight. What size engine? Have the guides been milled down to allow extra lift on the valves? Do you have springs, and what style of cam do you want to use, hyd flat, solid flat, roller, and do you have adjustable valve train?

I would not go any bigger than this...... You'll need to put valve springs on it with this cam

I ran a lunati bracket master II in a similar combo with good street maners and got the old f100 13.0's. I tryed other cams all the way to comp 292 but the little lunati was the best all around. I think it was around a .515 .545 lift. No valve clearence problems.
