I agree go with the stocker and you should be able to pick one up next to nothing since everyone likes to swap the cam out of these cars even though most of the time it's not needed.

Wait...

An e cam will give him a SLIGHT (somewhere between none and some) bit more topend power, even on a stocker. Not to mention I garentee he wont mind having a slightly chopier sound. I say if he can find one used and for a cheap price put it in.

They will work with stock heads. The valve old stock valvesprings can give way and you can float valves. I have personally bent valves with an e-cam, IDK the rpms cause it was a carbed car, with no rev limiter, and I have also had 130,000 mile springs with an F-cam hit the fuel cutoff and not float.

valve springs are easy to change, especially with the heads off the block, and you can get them for under 100 dollars. Id do the springs at the same time if you use a bigger cam.
